GLSEN hosts annual Youth Pride Dance for LGBTQ teens

Seattle Parks and Recreation and the Gay, Lesbian, and Straight Education Network (GLSEN) of Washington State will hold a Youth Pride Dance at Yesler Community Center from 8-11 p.m. on Friday, June 22 at Yesler Community Center, 917 E Yesler Way in Seattle.
This event provides the 21 and younger community of LGBTQ youth and their allies a safe and fun way to participate in Seattle’s Pride weekend. Pride’s theme this year is “The Many Faces of Pride.” The Youth Pride Dance honors the theme by allowing youth a space to celebrate their “many faces.” 
The dance provides an evening of fun, food, drinks, and music. Tickets are $5 ahead of time and $10 is the suggested donation at the door. Youth can obtain tickets ahead of time by visiting https://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/253313.

GLSEN is the leading national education organization focused on ensuring safe schools for all lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender students. Established nationally in 1995, GLSEN envisions a world in which every child learns to respect and accept all people, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity/expression.
The goal and purpose of the Washington State GSA Network, is to help open a dialog among schools from across the state, develop leadership skills and help to build peer support through programs, workshops and trainings.
