In honor of Pride Month in June, Chicago Public Library will feature a variety of programs for kids, teens and adults highlighting the culture, history and achievements of the LGBTQ community.

This year's keynote program Looking Out // Looking In Performance and Talk Back is a play that features the true stories of the performers where the audience is encouraged to engage back with the actors.

Over 25 free music performances, author events, story times, film screenings and more are planned to celebrate Pride Month. For more information about Pride Month programs and library offerings, visit chipublib.org/pride.
