Navy Pier’s third annual LGBTQ Pride celebration is billed as a family-friendly day of performances and partying, running from 11am to midnight. The lakefront event has quickly established itself as a Pride- weekend alternative, with organizers claiming it’s the largest such event outside of Boystown. This year’s programming includes Story Time with Drag Queens and performances by the Lakeside Pride Marching Band and Chicago Gay Men’s Choir; in the evening, there’s a headlining performance by CeCe Peniston followed by Navy Pier’s fireworks show.
