The third annual Bainbridge Pride Festival — boasting a bevy of guests, performers and activities — was again held at Waterfront Park, once more celebrating the island’s LGBTQ community and its allies, on June 23.
Nationally, June is LGBT Pride Month, so chosen to commemorate the Stonewall riots, which occurred in June 1969.
The island-based celebration, organized by Bainbridge Pride, is a satellite of other similar events set to take place in Seattle and elsewhere in Kitsap County, and featured food, local vendors, a beer-and-wine garden, invited speakers, live musical entertainment and children’s activities.
It was the best attended year for the island to-do yet, and the Review’s Luciano Marano was there, camera in hand, to record the scene. All his favorite shots are collected here.
