I have never been but the ones i have seen on tv look like fun.  That community is usually so open to anyone who wants to celebrate life.

Yes, I've been to a couple. I've always had a great time.

The Chicago Pride Parade is a huge party with outrageous costumes and floats. Go for the experience and have an open mind. :)

This year it's going to be extra special with the overturn of Doma. I'm going and taking my son.

 Yes years ago I went to one in Madison WI by accident!  My friends and I were just spending the day shopping and stuff and we had no idea the parade was scheduled.  But we had a geat time anyway!

I have never attended, I'm not much of a parade person and it's usually too hot for me but my son has attended several times. Many of the members at our temple attend every year and are always willing to allow any of the youth group members to tag along so he went. He always thought it was a blast and enjoyed himself immensely.

Of course it is a big parade and event in a big city so be prepared for crowds and it can get a bit rowdy although not in a really negative way. If you come have fun, there is much to celebrate this year and since the Illinois legislature manage to NOT PASS the same sex marriage act I would imagine that there would be many groups strongly encouraging them to do so...lol!

Oh heck no would I go to one. There was one some weekends back in Milwaukee.  It was Pride Fest at the Summer Fest grounds.
