12:00pm // Get your Pride on! Mark your spot along Montrose Avenue and Broadway in Uptown for the 45th Annual Chicago Pride Parade! PRIDE is when we honor our friends and loved ones in the LGBQT community. This colorful parade is like what would happen if Carnivale and Mardi Gras had a baby, but it’s even better than all that. Pride month is every June and is a way to remember the Stonewall Riots. It’s important that the world remain a safe place for the LGBQT community. Happy Pride Month everyone! Free and welcome to everyone.
