Pride Month 2014

Happy Pride Month Seattle! We’re pretty excited about all the upcoming events and hope you can join us as a volunteer.

Volunteers will be responsible for interacting with the public in a respectful manner and maintaining an exciting and welcoming tabling space. You should be comfortable talking to people and have good interpersonal skills, a sense of humor, and an interest in the LGBTQQ community. Don’t worry if you have never participated before, we can pair you with an experienced volunteer.

Below is a list of upcoming volunteers events in June. If you’re interested in any of the events, please visit the volunteer section of our website to view available shift times and sign up.
