Every Legendary Children is an event to remember, curated with queer and transgender people of color. This free evening includes art, dance, music and other performances by queer and transgender artists.
Legendary Children 2022
The seventh annual Legendary Children returned as an in-person event at the Olympic Sculpture Park on Friday, Sept. 23, 2022. Coming back in style after a three-year pandemic hiatus, the annual celebration of queer and trans Black, Indigenous and people of color (QTBIPOC) communities was organized by QTBIPOC community arts leaders with The Seattle Public Library, Seattle Art Museum (SAM), Central District Forum for Arts and Ideas and the Seattle Office of Arts & Culture. It included live performances, a public runway, an outdoor dance party, hot DJs, and highlights from the Pacific Northwest's house-and-ball community and premier drag royalty, as well as a vaccine booster clinic and a Seattle Public Library photo booth. The event was livestreamed for those not able to attend in person.
Legendary Children 2022 was made possible in part with funding from the American Rescue Plan Act, administered by the Office of Arts & Culture, along with The Seattle Public Library Foundation and the Seattle Art Museum.
