You’ll have to wait until Sunday to see the Pride flag wave from the Space Needle but a tour of Capitol Hill’s business districts Friday morning showed a rainbow-covered neighborhood. With more focus on the flag this year following the Space Needle controversy, the rainbow popped up in a few places it hasn’t been seen in the past. Add in the dedicated flag flyers and you end up with the symbol of Pride flying, hanging — and sometimes tangled — on every block.
There’s also a lot going on across the Hill this weekend: Prom Dress Rugby, Bend-It Extravaganza, Pride Festival and more.
Some instances of flag-waving might make you think of crass commercial opportunity but others are placed with authentic lowercased pride. In the end, there’s not much difference. Seeing the colors next to corporate logos is also a symbol of progress. Happy Pride. If you’re flying the flag at your home, send us a picture or add a link in the comments. Big pictures are below.
