Pride Weekend in Chicago!

(Picture I took from the Pilsen neighborhood)

This past weekend was awesome here in Chicago! I spent part of my weekend cheering on folks in Chicago's Dyke March and Pride Parade, as well as enjoying the Pride festivities in Chicago's Boystown neighborhood. It was a lot of fun and if you ever get the chance, come out to Chicago during Pride Weekend - so much to see! Here are some pictures I took of this weekend's festivities...

Chicago Dyke March 2009
The Chicago Dyke March Collective is a grassroots demonstration
and celebration of dyke, queer, and transgender resilience

In Chicago, The Gay and Lesbian Pride Parade is an institution. It's an outrageous event surrounded by the good-moodest of crowds, and it's not to be missed. Gay, straight, not sure, not particular -- it's a day to celebrate being yourself. And everyone is welcome.
