Celebrate Pride Month

Pride in Chicago

Chicago knows how to celebrate LGBTQ+ Pride!  A majority of the Pride month events take place in the Northalsted neighborhood (commonly referred to as “Boystown”), the first official gay neighborhood in the country, but celebrations – from street festivals, concerts, and parties to the annual Chicago Pride Parade – take place all over the city.
