Seattle’s Original Gayborhood Walking Tour

This event has passed.

Join MOHAI and the Pacific Northwest Historians Guild for a series of social history walking tours around Seattle this summer!

This tour, led by Julian Barr, traces a queer history of Pioneer Square from 1890 to the present, starting at the corner of Washington Street and Second Avenue.

Hear an important local story of building community and fighting against systemic oppression as you learn about the bars, nightclubs, bathhouses, and locations important to the formation of local lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer community.

This event is sold-out, and the wait list is now full.

Looking for more ways to explore Seattle’s story this summer? The social history walking tour series continues in August with Becoming a City: Walking North Lake’s Urban Evolution.  

Location: Leaves from S Washington Street and 2nd Ave S in Pioneer Square

Cost: $10 for MOHAI and PNW Historians Guild members / $20 general public


Attend Not Your Princess to meet contemporary artists and scholars who resist colonial narratives, shatter stereotypes, and celebrate Native culture.

This free program is part of the Beyond the Frame, a community wide-initiative revisiting the photographs of Edward Curtis and Native American identity, race and resilience, and art and culture. Complimentary childcare provided with registration.
