Arrested During Chicago Pride Parade

Arrested During Chicago Pride Parade

Last Saturday, those who marched in Pride were gay, straight, Trans, cisgender, people of color, refugees, immigrants, and people of all faiths, ages, professions, families and children.

Last year's Black Lives Matter protest at Toronto Pride is still reverberating in Toronto and elsewhere. But those debates shouldn't detract from the incredible diversity of the parade itself, both in terms of marchers and spectators. We wish for all persons to not only be represented, but safe and empowered in their celebration of existence at any Pride. Eid coincided with Toronto's Pride parade on Sunday.

"There's always been the issue in this community of particularly queer people of color not having a voice in the LGBTQ organizations", she said.

The 48th annual Chicago Pride Parade drew record crowds, as spectators crowded the streets, rooftops and balconies from Uptown to Lincoln Park along the 21-block route to celebrate gay pride on Sunday, June 25. I find that kids younger and younger are coming out, whether it's in terms of sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression.

For many, this year's festivities bring a different focus.

In New York, police said 12 people were arrested and charged with disorderly conduct.

"The community spirit I felt at Ramadan food banks in Montreal and Toronto reminds us all - no matter our backgrounds, we're in this together", he writes, spreading an important message of inclusivity.

Although Gay Pride festivals won't start in the United Kingdom until July, in London, advertising agencies have launched the first-ever television ads in support of Gay Pride and the LGBTQ community. Three days later the decision was reversed, and Pride announced that uniformed police would not be "excluded" from the parade, and instead, police were invited to carry the unity flags at the start of the march. We are and will simultaneously initiate conversations with community partners, Columbus Police Department and Franklin County Sheriff.

Amid the great success of this year's Pride Parade in Kingston, prominent members of the LGBTQ community warn against complacency, emphasizing the importance of maintaining a realistic perspective and working tirelessly to advocate for issues facing the LGBTQ community.

Not exactly a stand-offish politician, he was eager to meet others at the parade, including an adorable little Wonder Woman. Accept us for who we are. "We believe strongly that it's a free speech event".
