As the physical and virtual worlds transform into every color of the rainbow, ParkJockey invites all LGBTQ individuals and supporters to #ParkwithPride for Pride Week 2015! We have teamed up with the “It Gets Better” Project, a non-profit organization whose mission is to communicate to LGBT youth around the world that it gets better, and to create and inspire the change needed to make it better for them. We encourage all NYC and Chicago Pride Week 2015 attendees to reserve their parking in advance in support of the “It Gets Better” project. For every parking reservation, $1 of the proceeds will be donated to the non-profit.
♥ NYC Pride March ♥
One of the most popular NYC parades of the year will paint Fifth Avenue in every color imaginable. For Pride Week 2015, more than 50 floats, 300 marching organizations and thousands of spectators will unify for a celebration of love, equality and PRIDE for one’s’ true color! This year’s grand marshals are actors Ian McKellen and Derek Jacobi, activist Kasha Jacqueline Nabagesera and artist-educator J. Christopher Neal. Check HERE for a full list of New York Pride Week events. The march begins at Fifth Ave and 36th St and proceeds south to the reviewing stand at Fifth Ave and 8th St before turning west on Christopher St. to Greenwich Street.

♥ Chicago Pride Parade ♥
Chicago’s 2015 Pride Parade will highlight 200 registered performances including floats, decorated vehicles, dance groups, marching bands and walking contingents.The participants represent LGBTQ supporting community programs, clubs, businesses, governmental officials and individual community members. As the most historical Pride Week 2015, officials are estimating the crowd to be in the hundreds of thousands. So the plans are to line the parade route with barricades on both sides of the street from beginning to the end of the parade route. Spectators will be required to remain behind the barricades. Extra police officers and parade marshals will be stationed at various points on the street in front of the barricades along the parade route. The parade starts at noon on Sunday, June 28, 2015, at Montrose Avenue and Broadway in Uptown and ends near the intersection of Diversey Parkway and Sheridan Road in Lincoln Park.
