Pride Re-Cap

By Aaron Bailey in Arts & Entertainment on Jun 28, 2005 2:20AM


Yesterday, around 400,000 Chicagoans and visitors gathered to watch the 36th annual Gay and Lesbian Pride Parade. Politicians, drag queens, go-go boys, dykes on bikes, and moms and dads of gay kids paraded up Halsted and down Broadway under the hot June sun.

Many Chicagoist staffers -- gay and straight -- gathered for the parade, which first started in 1969 when 100 paraders marched down Clark Street.
