Megan Rapinoe and Sue Bird to lead 2024 Seattle Pride Parade

Read up on the couple’s latest moves in the community and what to expect for the upcoming Pride parade.

Megan Rapinoe is pictured on the left in a Seattle Reign soccer jersey holder her hands up and smiling toward the crowd as she walks off field. Sue Bird is pictured on the left in her Seattle Storm uniform with the basketball skimming her fingertips mid-pass.

Seattleites, start your engines — sports legends Megan Rapinoe and Sue Bird will be this year’s grand marshals for the 2024 Seattle Pride Parade.

This lands just a few weeks after the couple announced their plans to adapt the BookTok hit romance “Cleat Cute” into a TV series. The book by Meryl Wilsner follows an enemies-to-lovers arc between rival soccer players Grace and Phoebe.

To give an idea, our favorite Goodreads review of the novel says to “imagine if Ted Lasso was about American lesbians instead of (predominantly) straight British men” — now take that, and add a little spice.

While the upcoming parade is free to attend, there are a few ways you can prep:
