GenPride is partnering with Community Roots Housing on the development of this project – the first of its kind in the Pacific Northwest – which will include a senior community and health services center on the ground floor. We are engaged in a capital campaign to secure $5M in funding to build out the community center at Pride Place; funds raised through our first annual event will support this effort.
This event will recognize our LGBTQIA+ elders who have worked hard to lift up our community.
This generation of elders fought—and won—many of the rights we enjoy today. Without their tremendous courage in the face of hatred, discrimination, and violence—our community would be very different. We are committed to this being a truly inclusive event that represents the many diverse intersectionalities of our community.
