Walla Walla Valley Pride March – 11am

73 S Palouse St, Walla Walla, WA 99362

This is a non-corporate event organized and supported by individuals in the broader Walla Walla Valley. We want to be visible to honor the struggle of the people who made this visibility possible for us, especially the trans women of color who are still in the most danger under the current system of capitalist heteropatriarchy.

We also want to be visible to show young and closeted queer folx that this life is possible and beautiful and worth living.
