Who looked better yesterday, Chicago's own Jennifer Hudson performing to a packed Pride Fest, or the glammed-out drag queens in these photos? We'll call it a draw. Thankfully the hometown diva took to the stage long before the massive storm shut down pretty much every outdoor activity in the city for an hour or so. Today's forecast looks far better, so get out there and enjoy one of the best parties on the Pride calendar.
