Pride may be looking a bit different this year but the city didn’t forget to celebrate 50 years of LGBTQ+ history and it lit up in rainbow colors over the weekend!
Fifty years ago, on June 28, 1970, cities like Chicago, Los Angeles, New York and San Francisco held their first-ever Pride Parades marking the first anniversary of the Stonewall Uprising. While this year Chicagoans may not have been able to celebrate on the streets, the city hasn’t forgotten to celebrate half-a-century of rich LGBTQ+ history. Over the weekend the skyline lit up in the rainbow colors of Pride a display that was absolutely mesmerizing to watch. Take a look!
The Merchandise Mart shone bright thanks to Art on theMart and Adler Planetarium’s Pride-inspired projections…
While Chicago Fire FC celebrated the LGBTQ+ Community by lighting up Soldier Field!
The Prudential tower looked especially bright and beautiful!
And so were the Crain Building and 875 N. Michigan Ave.
Every building across Chicago shown bright and proud to celebrate love and equality.
Even Mother Nature decided she couldn’t miss out on celebrating 50 years of Pride and gifted us with a beautiful Rainbow!
Combined the buildings turned Chicago’s skyline into a beautiful sea of rainbow, a celebration worthy of Chicago’s rich LGBTQ+ history.
