Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan calls for unity at the 8th Annual Pride Flag Raising Ceremony

by MK Scott - SGN Contributing Writer

Last Friday, June 1, the Seattle LGBTQ Commission along with Seattle City Councilmember Lisa Herbold joined Mayor Jenny Durkan as they raised the Pride flag and proclaimed June as Pride Month. This flag was a little different than the usual six color rainbow, with added colors of pink, white and light blue for Trans Pride and brown and black for Black Pride. In Durkan's speech, she called for unity:

'We have to go forward and move together. And the only way we're going to do it is to take that rainbow and make sure that everyone understands with unity we could be better. With unity we can move forward. And with unity we could show what the best city, in the best state, in what is the best country (can be). And I am so proud, when we raise that flag, and we're going to raise it for it has the colors for our black and brown brothers and sisters and transgender. So our range of colors is even more beautiful than before! So it's a flag that we fly and I have the great, great pleasure that I will be proclaiming this Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender month, in clear, bright colors. Enjoy Pride! And remember, celebrate!'

After the speech, we all followed the flag up the stairs to the flagpole and we each took turns pulling the flag up.
