Seattle Pride Announces First Official ‘Pride Guide’ Publication for 2015

For the first time in the forty-one year history Seattle Pride produces definitive guide to Pride festivities

Seattle, Wash., October 7, 2014 – Today, Seattle Pride announces the production of the first official “Pride Guide,” Seattle’s definitive and trusted resource guide for all Pride festivities. This is the first publication of its kind in Seattle Pride’s longstanding forty-one year history. As a result of a dynamic partnership with Encore Media Group, City Arts and Northwest Polite Society, Seattle Pride plans to expand the reach of the Seattle Pride message.

The Official Pride Guide will be a glossy magazine that is targeted to local and visiting individuals of the LGBT community as well as readers of City Arts Magazine. With content provided by Seattle Pride and printing, production, and advertising done by Encore Media Group, the 2015 Pride Guide is sure to inform and excite Seattle Pride fans and newcomers alike.

“One of the major focuses of the Seattle Pride Guide is to drive editorial content with contributions from nonprofits and influential individuals with stories that both engage our audience and offer insight and structure for ongoing community involvement,” said Seattle Pride President Eric Bennett.

More than just a glossy magazine, the Seattle Pride Guide’s offerings will go beyond simple event listings and will delve deeper into what unites us all in the greater LGBT community.

“Seattle Pride looks forward to working with Encore Media Group to create a guide that will reflect everyone in our diverse community,” Bennett added. “This guide is a way for us to tell the stories of our community and amplify voices that need to be heard.”

“Want to get involved with Pride but aren’t sure how? Want to know about the latest trends in Seattle and how you might be able to contribute? Want to support the businesses and organizations that support you? Pick up the Seattle Pride Guide,” said Sarah Toce, Seattle Pride Director of Communications.

You can expect the Official Seattle Pride Guide to run from June 1 to June 29.

Seattle Pride is a non-profit organization based in Seattle, WA, whose purpose is to create unity, honor diversity, and achieve equal human rights throughout our region and the world. Seattle Pride is focused on informing and educating the community on LGBT issues through community outreach and produced events, including the annual Seattle Pride Parade, Pride Idol, Pride Brunch and the Seattle Pride Picnic.
