In 2004 - then Miss Gay Seattle, Aleksa Manila was tasked with organizing a fundraiser for an LGBTQ cause, and of course, Seattle Counseling Service was on top of that list! Inspired by fundraisers for Seattle Counseling Service, ICON was set to revive community building. It started as a little idea of a variety show at the old Timberline in downtown Seattle. Its concept was inspired by old school drag like the ones we read in memoirs and history books - like the Mocambo, Finnochio's and so on.
Fourteen years later, ICON remains the most FUN and talked about event in town! Thanks of course to our amazing team of performers, sponsors, donors, staff and volunteers! Take a peak at this year's ICONS!
THANK YOU TO OUR 2017 SPONSORS!
