Are you an LGBTQ or allied young professional looking for ways to get involved in the community and to expand your professional and social networks?

Young Professionals with Pride (YPP) is for you!

This October, we're at The Collective in South Lake Union. This is the last YPP event of the year! You don't want to miss it.

❓ Trivia by Foundation

Enjoy variety trivia brought to you by Jordan Lyon of Foundation. Foundation works to be a beacon of real community—to bring people together and build lasting relationships around the things we have in common, not the things that make us different.

👻 Costume Contest: $1 to enter

We know. It's the day before Halloween. Which means instead of pretending you hate fun and don't have a costume you've been working on since July, you should wear your costume to YPP instead!

To enter the contest, donate $1 to either the GSBA Scholarship Fund, the Anti-Defamation League, or Food Lifeline at the event. We'll choose a winner at the end of the night!

We want to see your creativity, your glitter, and your commitment. We don't want to see cultural appropriation, your costumes that are inappropriate for a professional networking event, or your costumes that are just an excuse to make fun of or trivialize identities or experiences. Questions? Email us at

🍦 Food, drinks, and ice cream

We'll have complementary bites by the kitchen at The Collective, liquor samples by Diagieo, one free drink from The Collective's bar, and ice cream by GSBA member Sweet Bumpas. If you want something more substantial, The Collective's kitchen will be open until 10:00pm with happy hour pricing all night long! 

📋 Voter registration

Democrats for Diversity and Inclusion will be on-site to help folks get registered to vote!
