Join the LGBTA Committee to celebrate Pride Sunday! Historically the Chicago Annual Pride Parade has been held on the last Sunday of June. In honor of this day, we will come together for a fun evening, hosted by member Stefanie Clark, to toast the LGBT trailblazers that have paved the way for today and future generations. We’ll be sharing about our first Pride Parade experience.
To explore past Pride Parades and the history of Chicago’s LGBT community, we encourage you to watch the below recommended videos and documentary.
Gerber/Hart has a collection of 8mm, VHS, and DVD home recordings of the Chicago Pride Parades that people have donated to the Library over the years.
“Out & Proud in Chicago” is the first television documentary to tell the history of Chicago’s lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) citizens. Its timeline spans from the Civil War through present day. This parallel history of the city tells a story of invisibility, oppression, devastation, revolution and triumph.
