Yes it’s Pride Month but if all you are looking forward to is the official Parade, then you are missing some city-folk action. The parade’s really for commercials and burbies, REALLY! The people behind the Latin@ Pride Picnic have a wonderful day in Humboldt Park in store for you. From 12pm – 6pm, there will be a clown, grills, dancers, drag kings/queens, and best of all: that Latin Spice my boyfriend loves. Latino/a people and allies from all over the city come to this for a day of celebration and connecting with our brown brethren. From the press release:
Why a Latin@ Pride event you ask?? Chicago’s Latina/Latino Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer communities, recognize the need and importance of celebrating and acknowledging our diverse identities and
cultures. Most Gay Pride celebrations held in Chicago have become more commercialized and lack education about Latino LGBTQ realities, such as health, immigration or violence, and few have non-commercialized sponsors.
