Queer Seattle

Progress Flag on the Space Needle

This Project Week will explore history, art, community organizations, culture and activism in the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer communities in Seattle.  Each day will have a particular focus, exposing students to a wide range of identities, communities, and experiences of LGBTQIA+ Seattleites and their intersecting identities. An effort will be made to visit LGBTQIA+-owned businesses that give back to the community. 

Special Considerations

Students will take both public and Overlake transportation to various locations. 

Participants must be willing to follow COVID guidelines.  Participants should only attend illness free. If a participant should test positive for COVID during the project, the student will be isolated, and the student’s family will be required to pick them up at their current location.  The family will bear all the costs associated with the student pick up. 

By selecting the above project, you and your family are accepting the financial responsibility for the cost of the projects.  This includes any unrecoverable expenses incurred if Overlake, or any federal, state or local government forces cancelation of the project, or if you or your family decide not to attend, or if your student becomes symptomatic and has to be isolated.
