Chicago Equality Rally at Andersonville Midsommarfest
The LGBTQ Community and allies will be gathering for an Equality Rally in solidarity with the National Equality March in Washington, DC Sunday, June 11 at 11am, at the 52nd annual Andersonville Midsommarfest. Speakers and musical performances will be held to promote visibility, unity, and pride.
The Rally will give voice to our concerns and will support, uplift, and bring attention to those in our communities who are targeted due to immigration status, ethnicity, religion, skin color, gender and disability.
The Coalition is proud to be a cosponsor of this event.

The 48th Annual Chicago Pride Parade
The parade kicks off at noon on Sunday, June 25, 2017, at Montrose Avenue and Broadway in Uptown and ends near the intersection of Diversey Parkway and Sheridan Road in Lincoln Park. Pride Month in June is the culmination of Chicago's vibrant LGBT community. The energy in the city peaks on Pride Weekend, which falls on the last weekend of June each year in commemoration of the anniversary of the Stonewall Riots in New York City on June 28, 1969 .
