In the summer of 1969, the Stonewall Uprising in New York City launched a new era in LGBTQ+ activism. Following their lead, Seattle’s LGBTQ+ community came together in the 1970s to celebrate their identities, advocate for equal rights, and fight Initiative 13 – a measure submitted to the voters that aimed to strip many civil rights protections from LGBTQ+ people.

Join host Rosette Royale as he talks to the people who helped lead Seattle's first Pride celebration in 1974, and the political movement that defeated I-13.
