June is Pride Month in Chicago—and this year, we're especially excited to welcome back marquee events like the annual Chicago Pride Parade, which will return to Uptown and Lakeview streets for the first time since 2019. Celebrate the whole month long with drag brunches, queer-friendly music fests (hello, Pride Fest and Pride in the Park!) and LGBTQ+ parties at nightclubs and Chicago gay bars, as well as thoughtful art exhibits and events for reflecting on the continuing struggle for equal rights. Take time to honor the vibrancy of our city's LGBTQ+ communities at the best events for Chicago Pride Month 2022.
