October 26, 1996 marks the anniversary of the first public demonstration by intersex people in the United States. Members of the now defunct Intersex Society of North America and their allies arrived in Boston, MA at the annual conference of the American Academy of Pediatrics. They demonstrated and shared their pain in a very public way, denouncing non-consensual infant genital surgeries and demanding the medical industry take notice. Doctors dismissed the activists as a vocal minority in a 1997 New York Times article covering the intersex action. The tides are slowly changing.

TODAY, intersex people and our allies are following in their footsteps, organizing in cities around the U.S., and around the world.

Welcome to Ace Week! Sexual attraction is a type of attraction to another person that involves a sexual interest towards them. While this type of attraction is a normal part of life for many people, this concept can be completely foreign for people who identify as asexual. Asexuality is a sexual orientation where a person experiences little to no sexual attraction to anyone and/or does not experience desire for sexual contact.

Like any other sexual orientation, asexuality isn’t a choice. Unlike abstinence and celibacy, which are both choices to avoid sex, asexuality is an innate part of who someone is.

KIRO Radio 97.3 FM

Seattle Pride is an organization founded in support of the LGBTQIA+ community with the mission to Create Unity, Honor Diversity, and Achieve Equal Human Rights. The Seattle Pride board of directors takes its responsibility to uphold that mission with the utmost urgency and the sober significance it deserves.

In keeping with our mission – and taking our community responsibility to heart – Seattle Pride has spoken out against Dori Monson’s recent tweet in which he used the trans community as a punching bag, intended to draw a comparison to how, in his opinion, our state doesn’t listen to science. He could’ve chosen anything else he disagreed with to make his point about the state’s adherence to science, but instead he chose to mock a law supporting the trans community. This is why the comments made were transphobic.

Since our public stand against Mr. Monson’s transphobic tweet, Seattle Pride has received an outpouring of mostly positive responses from our community, though we acknowledge all of the diverse perspectives both in favor and in disagreement.

Our freedom of speech is one of the many ways Seattle Pride is able to honor diversity and achieve equal human rights by speaking out, educating our community, and – when needed, advocating for change. What must be made clear is while free speech is a right afforded to all in our society, it does go both ways; Mr. Monson is free to criticize his government and make jokes at the expense of a susceptible community, but that community also has the right to criticize Mr. Monson and call for him to apologize for his comments or resign from a station for which he is a public voice – and which provides him an audience of community members which heard him joke at their expense.

However, this takes away from the true issue at hand. The cornerstone issue is respect for those who are transgender – 41 percent of whom have attempted suicide, nearly 10 times higher than the national average; largely brought on by judgement, discrimination, and ridicule. To support our community in the best way possible we must publicly call out any statements made in a public forum which further add to that rhetoric.

In response, Seattle Pride is calling for Mr. Monson to sincerely apologize for his comments, and has offered to engage in discussion with Bonneville International (KIRO 97.3 FM) and Vulcan Sports & Entertainment (Seattle Seahawks) on ways to mend the relationship with the LGBTQIA+ community; eliminate the stigmatization of our transgender community in the media; and instead spread awareness by expanding diversity, equity and inclusion initiatives, and educate people on how to be supportive to a community which deserves the same dignity as human beings that we all do.

If Mr. Monson is unable to issue an apology and take meaningful actions which demonstrate empathy and a willingness to understand the trans community, then we will continue our call for his resignation as his insensitive and irresponsible comments do not align with our mission, or from our perspective, the stated values of his employers.

Sincerely in Pride,

Seattle Pride / Seattle Out & Proud Board of Directors

International Pronouns Day seeks to make respecting, sharing, and educating about personal pronouns commonplace. Referring to people by the pronouns they determine for themselves is basic to human dignity. Being referred to by the wrong pronouns particularly affects transgender and gender nonconforming people. Together, we can transform society to celebrate people’s multiple, intersecting identities.

70.1% of LGBTQIA+ students report being verbally harassed.
29% of LGBTQIA+ youth have experienced homelessness, been
kicked out, or run away.
🤯
One in three queer youth.
On the streets.

LGBTQ youth disproportionately face bullying and harassment because of their identities. Each year, millions go purple for Spirit Day, thanks to @glaad to support LGBTQ youth in a united stand against bullying. Pledging to “go purple" on Spirit Day is a way for everyone to visibly show solidarity with youth and to take part in the largest, most visible LGBTQ anti-bullying campaign in the world.

Thanks to our friends at GLAAD for the resources! To see how you can help, head over to www.glaad.org/spiritday

Voye with Pride on Coming Out Day!

10/11/2020

“Most people think they don’t know anyone gay or lesbian, and in fact everybody does. It is imperative that we come out and let people know who we are and disabuse them of their fears and stereotypes.” - Robert Eichsberg (d. 1992, AIDS)

Coming out — whether it is as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender or queer — STILL MATTERS. When people know someone who is LGBTQIA+, they are far more likely to support equality under the law. Beyond that, our stories can be powerful to each other.

Someone tried to burn down this Black-owned coffee shop in Shoreline at 3:30AM. They even took the time to walk to the back of the building, put a bag over the gas lines and use that to set the lines on fire. Security footage captured a middle age white man lighting the fires.
https://www.facebook.com/10741676/posts/10110959189558178/?app=fbl
Luckily the damage was confined to the external parts of the building.
The grand opening was supposed to be tomorrow, but is being postponed. This space was largely designed by Shoreline area Black youth as a safe gathering place for other Black youth and community members. Today these youth got to see the aftermath of a grown adult trying to destroy all of that hard work.
Black Coffee NW is taking online donations, please consider donating if you can and raising awareness about what happened here.
