A threat to one of Seattle's oldest queer spaces
Seattle Parks and Recreation wants to build a children’s play area in Denny Blaine Park, which is also home to a popular nude beach full of history for Seattle’s LGBTQ+ community.
The city says it’s to address a lack of playgrounds in the area, but Seattle’s queer community is mobilizing to protect one of its most historic spaces.
Stranger Queer Culture and Politics reporter Vivian McCall is here to tell us all about it.
