Chicago NOW at Pride 2017
The NOW Chicago and Will County chapters join together at the Pride Parade

Chicago NOW participated in the 48th Annual Chicago Pride parade to the cheers of hordes of parade watchers. As we partnered with the Bisexual Queer Alliance of Chicago and the National Organization for Women, Will County chapter, we marched as allies the to the LGBTQ community and shared in the love of such a special day.

Midway through the parade, a group tried to shut down parade with a 12-point platform including discontent and the inclusion of politicians, corporations, and police allowed in the parade. The protests lasted a few minutes before the parade was allowed to continue.

What are your thoughts on these protests? Reach out to us at info@chicagonow.org and let us know!
