Alki Beach Pride

Stacy and Jolie Bass-Walden started with a simple idea: to gather with their LGBTQ+ friends, those looking for something to do in celebration of Pride other than the local club scene, and do it around a bonfire each year. Through these gatherings at the beach, a reputation had blossomed for hosting wonderful, fun-filled celebrations intended for people to connect. People began asking if Stacy and Jolie had considered doing something bigger, so in 2014, Alki Beach Pride was officially created in order to build new ways to better connect and strengthen our community in West Seattle.
