More than 2,100 people and 50 vendors attended the festival on the North Shore’s Great Lawn, and 600 people and 43 units participated in the parade.  Responding to requests to move the event to a more visible location, the Pride Parade started downtown and wound around through the Three Rivers Arts Festival, ending on the North Shore.  There was a wide range of activities throughout the month including Stand Up and Yell! Bingo, held in the parking lot off Ellsworth Avenue, a special performance of Varla Jean Merman, under a Big Top at the City Theatre; Standing Together with Pride, a pageant of diversity benefiting The Seven Project, a parade and festival, as well as Pride Day at PNC Park, as the Pirates played the Seattle Mariners.
