Capital City Pride began under the aegis of Rainbow Center Olympia. Back then, the festival drew a few hundred people. Now as many as 10,000 celebrants converge on a two-day extravaganza that marks the climax of a very busy year for the organization. After a champagne kickoff party at the Urban Onion on Friday, June 10, the live entertainment begins at 11:10 a.m. Saturday with a performance of the People's Choir. Capital Playhouse's resident guitar picker and set designer extraordinaire Bruce Haasl takes the stage shortly thereafter. After a welcome from Mayor Doug Mah, Jericho plans to rock your face off at noon. While that may seem an odd slot for such numbers as "Bad Lesbian," Jericho isn't worried.

"I think (we live in) a really interesting time," she muses. "There's a heightened sense of things out there. The sides are both pushing harder, and I think it's one of those times in history when something changes. At least that's what I hope for."
