The Pride Parade is a major event in Chicago. It started 43 years ago as an act of rebellion against harassment and discrimination. But today, it shows the unity of the LGBT citizens and enjoys support from the broader community. This year, there will be a lot more to celebrate; it is the first year where gay marriage has been legalized in Illinois and members of the U.S. Armed Forces can march openly with pride and without fear of being discharged.
The route of the parade will start at Montrose and Broadway, and end on Sheridan and Division going through Halsted and Belmont. If you are driving to the parade, finding parking is an obstacle. Fortunately, you are able to reserve your parking through ParkJockey which provides different parking facilities near the Pride Parade within walking distance, including 808 W. Addison.
ParkJockey and its employees are proud supporters of the Pride Week and advocate equal right for all citizens regardless of sexual orientation.
