Every summer, cities around the globe celebrate Gay Pride (also known as LGBT Pride), which commemorates the historic trials and tribulations of the global LGBT community while celebrating equality rights, sexual diversity, and gender variance.

Global Pride events vary in size and scope. Whether small, large, solemn, or carnivalesque, people from all sexual backgrounds unite under the rainbow flag for a month of Pride bashes.

One of the most exciting cities to celebrate LGBT Pride in 2015 is Chicago. The Windy City boasts massive Pride parties like the Annual Chicago Pride Parade, where nearly 800,000 attendees enjoy a sprawling procession that features local Chicago athletes, newscasters, and other celebrities. The parade features more than 200 registered floats, decorated cars, marching bands, performance groups, and participating organizations.

Boystown, the neighborhood where the parade takes place, is known as the first officially recognized gay village in the United States. The area offers plenty of perfect Gay Pride restaurants, shops, and gay-themed stores to celebrate the occasion. With its plethora of 5am bars and dance clubs, Boystown keeps the Gay Pride shindig going strong until the early morning hours.  

Chock-full of Gay Pride celebrations, Chicago packs an entertaining assortment of soirees celebrating the LGBT community.
