A Thriving Community: Capitol Hill’s Pride Place

Pride Place, Seattle’s newest LGBTQIA+ friendly senior housing community, serves as a safe haven for city residents. Targeted towards individuals 55 and older, this 118-unit development ensures LGBTQ individuals can live comfortably, affordably, and safely. Senior residents benefit from living just steps away from the Broadway & Pike-Pine Stop on the First Hill Streetcar Line, with immediate access to grocery stores and other essential needs. The eight-story building also houses on the first floor GenPride, a community center offering resources for queer seniors. Residents appreciate the confidence and security Pride Place provides, especially since research shows LGBTQIA+ seniors often face the risk of re-closeting in unsafe or unaccepting environments.
