Along Seattle's Pride parade route, people from all different backgrounds and beliefs gathered to celebrate one of the most colorful days in the city.
Each story—unique, individual, and telling. From young children to grandparents, these are some of the people KING 5 met during the parade.
Savanah Whalen attended pride for the first time this year.
"I just love how everyone's free to be whoever they want to be and there's no hate."
She loved watching the drag queens during the parade.
"Pride means being open, being proud of who you are, and not letting anyone discriminate you," she said. "It is a great experience. It's great to be around a whole bunch of people that get you and love you for who you are."
Nathanial Castronovo's friend invited him to Seattle Pride for the first time this year so he went with his girlfriend.
