Whoever said Seattle’s too rainy for outdoor fun must’ve come at the wrong season. Seattle Pride was beaming and bright this year, with beautiful weather and even more beautiful celebrants.

GayCities sent roving photographer Matt Baume to capture the big smiles in and around Seattle Center, with locals stripping down, splashing through fountains, dancing at the main stage, and generally throwing caution to the wind for the year’s biggest queer party.

Whether zipping up to the top of the Space Needle, flipping around acrobatically with Seattle Cheer, lounging in the shade of the trees, or venturing into the nearby MoPop museum, pride 2019 kept everyone happy all day long and well into the night
