Seattle Landmark Wants $45K to Go Gay

Seattle Landmark Wants $45K to Go Gay


The operators of the Seattle Space Needle told its city's gay community that it will fly a Pride flag from the iconic structure -- if they can raise $45,000 for LGBT charities.

The Space Needle flew the flag for the first time last year, but when asked for a repeat performance, they presented the fundraising challenge to Seattle. The Space Needle operators want $50,000 raised -- they donated $5,000 -- by Pride weekend, which begins June 25. The money will go to the Greater Seattle Business Association LGBT and allied scholarship fund, Dan Savage's It Gets Better Project, which supports the Trevor Project, Lambda Legal, and Mary's Place, a trans-inclusive women's shelter in Seattle.
