Drag queen extraordinaire Ursula Android will be everywhere this weekend!

BE PRIDEFUL Bring family, friends, partner, loved ones, and other people of your community to Volunteer Park, and set up your own picnic/BBQ and celebrate PRIDE your own way. Afternoon entertainment at Volunteer Park’s main stage will be provided until 6 p.m. Volunteer Park. All day. Sat., June 23.

SEATTLE FRONTRUNNERS Seattle’s gay and lesbian running and walking club hosts the 18th Annual “Run With Pride,” a kickoff to Seattle’s gay pride weekend. All proceeds from the Run With Pride will benefit the Safe School Coalition of Washington and the Gay and Lesbian Teacher Student Association of Greater Puget Sound. Seward Park, 527-6776, www.seattlefrontrunners.org. Registration begins at 7:30 a.m.; race starts at 9 a.m. Sat., June 23.

SEATTLE DYKE MARCH & RALLY The theme this year is “Indignation in DYKEnation.” This opportunity to join other dykes in celebration of a diverse community will feature an extensive list of speakers, spoken-word artists, drag kings, and musical entertainment. Be prepared to sing and shout—or bang your pots, pans, bell, drums, and favorite noisy knickknacks. Broadway Performance Hall, 1625 Broadway, 852-8687, www.seattledykemarch.com. Rally starts at 4:30; performers and speakers at 5 p.m.; march leaves at 7 p.m. Sat., June 23.

CLOTHESLINE PROJECT Concurrent with the Dyke March, the Northwest Network will be doing the Clothesline Project for the third year in a row. The Clothesline Project is an effort to bear witness to queer survivors of domestic violence and assault. People that have received services from the Network will make T-shirts that will be hung up all afternoon and evening at the Dyke March, in a display that’s both sad and empowering. Many queer abuse survivors are silenced, and the Clothesline Project offers a space for survivors to be seen and heard. Broadway Perf. Hall Plaza. www.nwnetwork.org for more information on services. Sat., June 23.

25TH ANNUAL PRIDE MARCH Drag queens, dykes on bikes, performance artists, community groups, and go-go boys on floats lead the charge in the march up Broadway to Volunteer Park, where the rally and festival take place. Dress up—or dress down—and join the parade. Capitol Hill, leaves from Pike and Broadway intersection. 11 a.m. march; festival till dusk. Sun., June 24.

THE CUFF COMPLEX PRIDE DAY STREET PARTY Manly men and the men who love them (and yes, a few twinks and a few ladies) will enjoy beer specials and sunshine to finish off Pride Week 2001. Outdoor festivities include entertainment by Ultra Nate, CeCe Peniston, Martha Wash, Jeanie Tracy, Viola Wills, and Paul Lekakis. You’ll get to boom, boom, boom, and—if you’re lucky—go back to somebody’s room. The Cuff Complex, 1533 13th, 323-1525. Sun., June 24.

MANRAY VIDEO BAR 2ND ANNUAL GAY PRIDE EVENT A wild weekend of gay games and prizes—each night with its own circuit-partylike theme. Hosts include Gaysha Star and Mark “Mom” Finley. Cover benefits Gay City Health Project and Children’s Hospital. If you like, hang out here all weekend; they’re also serving Sunday brunch. Manray, 514 E. Pine, 568-0750. $5. 4 p.m.-2 a.m. Fri., Sat., Sun./9 a.m.-3 p.m. Sun. brunch.

GAY PRIDE SEATTLE @ CLUB EGO Rejoice, Circuit Boys! Your weekend has arrived. Not only will you be able to gawk at each other’s sweaty, muscled, T-shirtless chests, but you’ll probably see some new pecs from Portland and Vancouver, B.C., as well. Some damn talented DJs are coming to Seattle, so dust off the beads and polish that neon glowstick. Jamie J (Fri., June 22) has spun at S.F.’s Universe and London’s Heaven; Billy Carroll’s (Sat., June 23) turntable skills have wowed N.Y.C.’s Splash and D.C.’s Nation; and Steven Oliveri (Sun., June 24) has made the men at San Diego’s Rich’s and N.Y.C.’s Limelight dance their stretch pants off. Ego, 916 E. Pike, 709-2227 or www.getego.com. Jamie: $15. 10 p.m.-4 a.m. Fri., June 22. Billy: $15. 10 p.m.-4 a.m. Sat., June 23. Steven: $5. 8 p.m.-2 a.m. Sun., June 24. $30 for all three nights. David Massengill

WILDROSE What? No tequila jello shots? And where’s the mud wrestling, dammit? Actually, the Wildrose hosts four fun- and frolic-filled nights with plenty of girls, girls, girls. On Thursday, four X-chromosome-dominated bands take the stage (7 p.m., $5). Up next, feel free to shout “Show us your tits!” at the 3rd Annual Wet T-shirt Contest ($5, Friday, dancing at 9 p.m., contest at 11 p.m.). Saturday, get ready to belt “The Rose” at outdoor karaoke (3 p.m.) and then dance to DJ Ally (9 p.m., $5). And forget about resting on the seventh day. Instead, hit the beer garden at 1 p.m. and listen to DJs all day for free. Wildrose, 1021 E. Pike, 324-9210. Thurs., June 21-Sun., June 24. Audrey Van Buskirk

TASTE THE RAINBOW AT THE TIMBERLINE Seattle’s foot-stompingest bar has had a popular resurgence of late, and it’s sure to pull out all the stops over the weekend. The dusk-till-dawn after-hours bash on Saturday should be wildly cruisey, and Sunday’s disco celebration (filled with sweaty, happy hordes even on non-Pride nights) requires at least a pit stop. Timberline, 2015 N. Boren, 883-0242. Sat. and Sun., June 23-24. Steve Wiecking
