June Pride Month
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. A theme for this year's Pride Celebrations, suggested by InterPride (an international group of Pride Committees), is "Pride 365." An alternative theme is "Pride 365- 'Have Pride Year 'Round."
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.
Every year in Chicago, June Pride Month features dozens of social, cultural, athletic and political events. These events, that take place in different areas of the metro Chicago area, are organized by various community organizations and individuals.
Each year these events are compiled to create the June Pride Month Calendar. The calendar is featured on this web site; in the annual Pride Guide booklet; and in local publications. If there is an event that an organization, group or individual wants to schedule during June Pride Month, all they have to do is to organize it, and it can be added to the calendar.
However, our primary responsibility is to coordinate the Annual Pride Parade. The parade is scheduled each year for the last Sunday in June.
Packets containing information concerning listing an event on the June Pride Month calendar; parade registration; the Pride Guide booklet; and barricades and portable restrooms are sent out to our mailing list. To be added to the mailing list to receive the packet send your address to PrideChgo@aol.com.
