Kitsap Pride celebration July 21 | Kitsap Week

BREMERTON — Kitsap Pride Network celebrates the U.S. Supreme Court’s recent ruling extending federal benefits to same-sex couples July 21, noon to 5 p.m., in Bremerton’s Evergreen Rotary Park, 1500 Park Ave.

The event is free and open to the public. The day includes a “puppy pride parade” and performances by Go Periscope, vocalist Kim Archer, and local performer Shawn Ellison.

For more than 15 years, the Network has hosted the only event this side of Seattle to celebrate the gay, lesbian and transgender population of Kitsap County.

“With all the strides forward made this past year, our annual celebration is as much about pride as it is about gratitude,” said Michael Goodnow, Network chairman. “We are thankful for the support our community has shown and continues to show. This event is about community, and for the community. We hope to see everyone there.”
