Chicago Pride Parade



Chicago Pride Parade

The Chicago Pride Parade is the annual gay pride parade held on the last Sunday of June in Chicago, Illinois. It is considered the culmination of the larger Gay and Lesbian Pride Month, as promulgated by the Chicago City Council and Mayor of Chicago.

The parade takes place through the main streets of Lake View East. Recent parades have started at noon on Halsted Street, proceeding north from Belmont Avenue, passing the Center on Halsted at Waveland Avenue; south on Broadway (at Grace Street) to Diversey Parkway and east on Diversey Parkway to Cannon Drive.

Each year, parade entrants, as well as groups sponsoring Pride Month events, have the option of using an international theme, or using a theme or slogan of their own choice. The 2011 international theme suggested by InterPride, the international Pride organization, is "Pride Around the World." Regardless of how an individual wants to commemorate and celebrate Pride, there is an event or function that can fit the needs of most people.
