Chicago Gay Pride Parade 2003
Hetrosexuals like myself who live in the East Lakeview neighorhood of Chicago (better known to locals as BoysTown), can become honorary members of the gay community towards the end of June each year if they so choose. NO it doesn’t mean the we start experimenting, just that we show up on Broadway Street to watch the Pride Parade. I must admit that for the first 5 years I lived in the neighborhood, I refused to go to the parade — even though I could hear it from my apartment. It wasn’t that I’m homophoic, in fact I’m very liberal when it comes to gay politics. I just didn’t want people to think I was gay. I know, stupid huh? Then about two years ago, I realized how silly that was and joined the half a million people to watch the parade. It always makes for a good time. Here are some shots from this years Parade held earlier today. Enjoy!
