We've rounded up a shortlist of some of our favorite ways you can celebrate marriage equality in Chicago this weekend through Sunday's 46th Annual Pride Parade.
30 Queer Plays in 60 Straight Minutes The Neo-Futurists' annual show, is playing Friday June 26 and Saturday, June 27 at 11:30 p.m. and Sunday, June 28 at 7:00 p.m. Tickets cost $25 with all proceeds going to The Night Ministry.

Chicago Dyke March The annual Chicago Dyke March is returning to Humboldt Park this Saturday, June 27, to celebrate grassroots queer culture with a march and party in the park.

This year the parade Grand Marshal is country singer Ty Herndon. Word is the Stanley Cup will be making an appearance.
Pride North Rogers Park gets its very own Pride bash Sunday June 28 at Pride North. Located on Glenwood Avenue off the Morse Red Line, the party will feature live music and DJs from noon to 2 a.m.
