A little about Whatcom Youth Pride

In late 2018, a handful of educators, parents, community members and students came together with a shared goal of finding ways to celebrate and show support to LGBTQIA+ youth in Whatcom County.  Whatcom Youth Pride (WYP) was born! 

In June 2019, the Whatcom Youth Pride coalition hosted one of the nation’s only all-youth Pride Parade and Festivals.  LGBTQIA+ youth, allies, and their families marched along a short parade route while the community lined the streets with signs and shouts of support.  The day culminated in a large festival with LGBTQIA+ youth-focused and allied organizations tabling, food trucks, and a youth-led drag and talent show. 

Derailed a bit by the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020-2021, WYP came back better than ever in 2022, with our best event yet.  The WYP Coalition continues to work with its community partners to find innovative ways to celebrate LGBTQIA+ youth in Whatcom County. Thank you for showing your PRIDE by supporting WYP!
