We hope you’ll join us for Tend! A Celebration of Community on June 17, 2021. This virtual event will bring together Pride Foundation’s community for a memorable evening of performances, storytelling, and celebration as we honor our 2021 LGBTQ+ scholars and the organizations who have worked on the frontlines of the pandemic and led racial justice efforts over the past year.

Our Emcee for the Evening
Seattle soul singer, emcee, teacher, Rain City Rock Camp Adult Rock Camp Director, “Westminster Daddy” and Black Auntie, Adra Boo, performs as part of new wave noir band Hotels, SimonePin Productions and Dark Diamonds Burlesque, indie-soul duo Fly Moon Royalty, and as a solo artist, sharing stages with internationally known musicians and burlesque performers across the country. A veteran performer on myriad stages, Boo has been compared to timeless musicians like Aretha Franklin and Tina Turner, unafraid to ruffle feathers or rouse would-be audiences. And while all of these efforts cause her to stand out in the city, it’s her work as an artistic liaison that has made her a local legend.
