41st Annual Pride Parade Boystown gets packed to the point of bursting at this 250,000+ person event that brings out the Ls, the Gs, the Bs and the Ts (and let’s not forget the big corporations, the straight allies and the politicos) in full force. Rain or shine, let the booze, the Pride and the good gay times flow freely. And don’t forget to wear protection (we’re referring to sunscreen of course!). Arrive early and view the festivities from the outdoor space at Kit Kat Lounge & Supper Club (3700 N Halsted St, 773-525-1111). Sun 27 at noon.
