Chicago Pride Fest will mark its 20th year with a virtual festival format.

On June 20-21, the Northalsted Business Alliance will bring Boystown to the world with a streaming Chicago Pride Fest celebrating the love, life and diversity of Chicago's LGBTQ+ community.

Running from 7-9 p.m. both nights, the streaming Twitch event will feature a full line-up with entertainment, activism, greetings and more. Virtual gate donations will benefit Boystown community programming, the Center on Halsted and Howard Brown Health.

Northalsted President Ramesh Ariyanayakam acknowledged how different things will look this year: "Right now our focus is all about planning a Pride celebration for the digital ages. We know this virtual festival will bring much needed connection and hope to our community and beyond and are thrilled to produce this event."

More details are at PridefestChicago.com . A full programming line-up will be available in June.
