Background and Analysis:

Olympia has a long history of celebrating and supporting the diversity of all its citizens and visitors.  29 years ago, Capital City Pride organized the first small town Pride outside of Seattle and has continued its annual celebration since.  The City, its employees, elected officials, citizens, places of business and visitors have always enthusiastically participated in Pride festivities every year. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the public Pride event in Olympia will not take place this year. However, the City is recognizing the entire month of June as Pride Month and continues its support and celebration of the LGBTQ community.
