Are you getting ready to show your Pride this weekend? There are so many hot fun events to get your ready for the Parade on Sunday that you'd better take a bunch of naps so you can enjoy everything. Get out there, have some fun and enjoy Pride. Remember to come back every Thursday for the full weekend lineup.
SATURDAY, JUNE 26
Grab your pillow and head to Millennium Park this morning at 10AM for a pillow fight. Yes you read that right, a pillow fight! Be part of a flash mob and pretend you're a teenager again. You'll need to wear a red or blue t-shirt, check the site for details, but bring a pillow, bring a friend and get ready to have a lot of fun...shhh, don't tell anyone, it's a surprise.
For the second year in a row the Chicago Dyke March will take place on the southside of the city. Start at the Shore Bank (7054 S Jeffery Blvd) at 2:30 and march, ride, walk and show your Dyke Pride all the way to Jackson Park where there'll be a rally at 4PM, live music, performances, dj's and more.
Head to Hollywood Beach tonight, yes I said tonight, for a special lakeside screening of Victor/Victoria thanks to "Movies in the Park" from the Chicago Park District. Tonights movie will start at dusk (around 8:45) but get there early to enjoy the fun of sitting on the beach and watching a movie. More movies are scheduled throughout the summer at local parks, use this handy tool so you don't miss any of them.

SUNDAY, JUNE 27
Is there anything else going on today besides the 41st Annual Chicago Gay Pride Parade? Even if there is, that's really the only thing going on today. Remember, the whole parade route is barricaded again this year, so get there early to find the best spot...and make sure you're on the right side of the barricade. I'll be marching with the Chicago Spirit Brigade so look for me and I'll look for you. HAPPY PRIDE!!!
