Chicago's LGBTQ+ Pride Month

June marks Pride Month. The whole month of June is dedicated to honoring the 1969 Stonewall Riots and recognizing the contributions and efforts to achieve equal justice for the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer (LGBTQ+) community. The City of Chicago honored LGBTQ+ Chicago residents by announcing the “Chicago’s Proud” campaign to recognize and highlight our city’s LGBTQ+ communities and their contributions. On June 3, 2021, Mayor Lori E. Lightfoot in conjunction with the LGBTQ+ Advisory Council kicked off the campaign with a crosswalk reveal painted as the Pride flag and Transgender Pride flag. This year, the City of the Chicago is excited to celebrate the Chicago Pride Parade which will be held this October.
