Members of the LGBTQ community, including the newly elected Chicago mayor Lori Lightfoot and her wife, marched in this year’s Pride Parade. Along the parade’s route, attendees of all ages watched as floats carrying everyone from veterans to Obama Foundation members passed by. The parade began at Montrose Avenue and was scheduled to conclude at Diversey Parkway at Sheridan Road. However, due to severe weather, officials canceled the parade 30 minutes before it was supposed to end.
