liberal part

descent. Being a ''very'' liberal part of the country, Seattle is one of the most sprawling LGBT communities in the US, second only to San Francisco. The infamous Capitol Hill area, east of downtown, is the place for LGBT friendly business and bars, as well as a resource center. The ''PrideFest'', the largest festival celebrating the pride of coming out is celebrated at the Seattle Center, along with preceding events, especially the ''Pride Parade'. Locals have long talked of the '''Seattle Freeze''', referring to the cold politeness of residents. The theory is that while they are very polite and warm on first interaction, they are actually reserved and interactions rarely lead to real acts of friendship (an invitation to dinner, personal conversations, etc.). The origin is obscure, but it is mostly assumed to be from Scandinavian immigrants that brought their home country's customs here. An equivalent to ''introversion'', expect to make all the "first moves" to meet people here. Residents' shyness also extends to anger and annoyance. Locals often make fun of themselves for their passive aggressive culture, where even in the most upsetting circumstances they will retain their polite nature. Climate

Seattle

'''Seattle''' (

The Seattle area had previously been inhabited by Native Americans (Native Americans in the United States) for at least 4,000 years before the first permanent European settlers. The settlement was moved to its current site and named "Seattle" in 1852, after Chief Si'ahl (Chief Seattle) of the local Duwamish (Duwamish tribe) and Suquamish (Suquamish tribe) tribes.

Logging was Seattle's first major industry, but by the late 19th century the city had become a commercial and shipbuilding center as a gateway to Alaska during the Klondike Gold Rush. By 1910, Seattle was one of the 25 largest cities in the country. However, the Great Depression severely damaged the city's economy. Growth returned during and after World War II, due partially to the local Boeing company, which established Seattle as a center for aircraft manufacturing. The city developed as a technology center in the 1980s, with companies like Amazon.com, Microsoft and T-Mobile US based in the area. The stream of new software, biotechnology, and Internet companies led to an economic revival, which increased the city's population by almost 50,000 between 1990 and 2000. Since then, Seattle has become a hub for green industry and a model for sustainable development.

Seattle has a noteworthy musical history. From 1918 to 1951, there were nearly two dozen jazz nightclubs along Jackson Street, from the current Chinatown International District, to the Central District. The jazz scene developed the early careers of Ray Charles, Quincy Jones, Ernestine Anderson and others. Seattle is also the birthplace of rock musician Jimi Hendrix and the alternative rock style grunge.
