Theme: Generations Of Pride

Historically, in the 1970's and 1980's, Pride events were concentrated during "Pride Week" in Chicago, as well as other cities nationwide. However, as the communities grew, there was a realization both locally, and nationally, that Chicago Pride Week needed to be expanded to "Pride Month" in order to accommodate the abundance of events. Spacing events over an entire month allows potential participants the choice of selecting events that they want to attend at their leisure.

Now, every year in Chicago, June Pride Month features close to one hundred different social, cultural, athletic and political events coordinated by various community organizations, groups and individuals. The events take place in different areas of the Chicago metro area. They include choral concerts, workshops, dances, picnics, religious services, plays, film screenings, 5K & 10 K runs, a street festival, a dyke march and the Annual Pride Parade.

Every year, these events are recorded and compiled by PRIDE Chicago, for inclusion in the Pride Calendar. The calendar is published and featured on their web site, in their annual Pride Guide booklet and in local LGBT publications.

The parade will feature 200 registered contingents including floats, decorated vehicles, performance groups, two marching bands and walking contingents.

The entries represent community organizations, businesses, governmental officials and individual community members. Crowd estimates each year are in the hundreds of thousands.
