Chicago Pride Parade
Despite some opposition from some members of the community, the annual Pride Parade will stay in the Boystown area of Lakeview this year.
After saying he’s open to moving the annual Pride Parade out of Boystown, Ald. Tom Tunney (44th) has launched a survey to find out if the community would support moving the parade downtown.
Over one million people attended Sunday’s Chicago Pride Parade, according to an estimate from Chicago Police.
There was plenty of pride in the Uptown and Lakeview neighborhoods on Sunday, as a record crowd turned out for the annual Chicago Pride Parade.
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.
Though they found Francis Cardinal George’s apology for linking gay rights activists to the KKK “woefully inadequate,” a group that had planned to protest outside Holy Name Cathedral Sunday has canceled the protest.
With almost half a million attendees, the Chicago Pride Parade is one of the biggest in the country. Come show your support for the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender community at the parade this year in the only manner acceptable: by having fun.
