About this event:
WHAT: A four-mile-long parade route celebrating LGBTQ community with the theme of “Stonewall 50: “MILLIONS of MOMENTS of PRIDE.” 2019 marks the 50th anniversary of the uprising, outside New York’s landmark Stonewall Inn, which sparked the Gay Rights Movement.
SO WHAT: If you haven’t been to a Pride Parade in Chicago, I highly suggest it. It’s a dizzying display of joyful LGBTQ+ expression at its most lavish and proud heights. The parade travels for four miles where everyone gets the freedom to feel secure with their sexual and gender identities. It’s a fun, frantic, and downright enjoyable experience. More than anything it continues to fight the oppression of the LGBTQ community in the best possible way: through unabashed acceptance. The parade starts at Montrose Avenue and Broadway in Uptown and ends near the intersection of Diversey Parkway and Sheridan Road in Lincoln Park.
NOW WHAT: Head to any part of the parade route before noon and get ready for a fun time. Then hang out and celebrate all day.
