We’re excited about the Iconic Chicago Pride Parade making a return that Sunday, with many parade-goers planning to continue the celebration afterward with us at Grant Park. Equally as exciting is being able to present this all-star lineup to the community – keeping our spirits high. As much as we celebrate Pride today as a party, it has never been more important to remember that Pride is a protest, and the queer community is continuously fending off anti-gay legislation and sentiments. From anti-trans legislation to “Don’t Say Gay” laws impacting our youth that while we dance we must also fight for one another.
