What time does the gay pride parade end in chicago
BOYSTOWN — For the 48th year, Boystown will erupt in rainbow balloons and confetti this weekend to celebrate the pride of Chicago's lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer communities. Whether it's your first time at the parade or your 20th, there's some important information you should know to make this your best Pride yet. Chicago's Pride Parade began in , one year after police brutality against LGBTQ people in New York sparked the Stonewall riot, named for the Greenwich Village gay bar where patrons fought back against a police raid. While just a few hundred people attended the Chicago Gay Pride Parade in its earliest years, attendance has hovered close to 1 million people in recent years.
Anyone who sent us an e-mail asking to be on the parade list for next year can be assured that we have added you to the list. However, we already had 75 potential entries on that list from previous years and another 75 that we could not register this year, so it could take a few years to come up on the list again. But we have added you.
