Latest CHICAGO Gay Pride
Officials say this year’s Gay Pride Parade will be more controlled—and manageable—that last year’s parade, which drew nearly 800,000 people.
One of the original cities to celebrate pride following the 1969 Stonewall Riots, Chicago promises no shortage of LGBT pride this year. The Chicago Pride Parade, which started as a march on June 27, 1970, features marching bands, dance teams, local businesses and supportive groups out to show their true colors. Last year’s attendance hit more than 750,000, serving as the ultimate ending to June Pride Month in Chicago.
Celebrating at the Pride Parade won’t be complete without finding some good grub in the area to share with friends. These local restaurants are all just steps away from the festivities.
From wigs to complete costumes, finding the right look for the Chicago Pride Parade needn’t be stressful. Check out the following places to get an entire outfit or just a few accessories.
Here in Chicago, there are resources that support all stages of self-awareness and discovery for members of the LGBT community.
