Lakeview, Chicago. ( January 13, 2017 ) Sidetrack The Video bar-famous for Show Tune Sunday, frozen slushies, and napkin tosses ( among other events and social activism )-is throwing a Love is Love Party all day and night Friday January 20. Sidetrack, along with partners Lambda Legal and Absolut, want to "Make J20 Great Again!" with a bevy of ways for people to come together and reminding all of us that love is still love, resistance goes better with slushies and the LGBTQ community has powerful lawyers that are ready for the fight of our lives.

Sidetrack has a long history of being an epicenter of LGBT activism. Co-owner of Sidetrack and founder of Equality Illinois Art Johnston often speaks to the importance of bars and their impact on the gay community as places to gather to commiserate, celebrate and most importantly—activate.

Lambda Legal knows how to fight against a hostile government and will be on-hand to help our community engage in the resistance work ahead. Absolut will have a Love is Love photo-booth so that people can celebrate their love, along with a special on their signature Sidetrack Krush from 5-9PM. iCandee will also be on hand selling exclusive Love is Love hats and t-shirts with proceeds from these sales going to support the work of Lambda Legal. There will be inspiring performances from RuPaul's Drag Race start DiDa Ritz and Chicago favorite The Vixen.

"We all need to come together in solidarity on January 20. Public opinion is on our side and we will not ignore this major shift that is taking place in our country with the inauguration, however, we are determined to remain positive and motivated to create change together." General Manager, Brad Balof.

Sidetrack will open at 3PM on Friday, January 20. Show Tunes 5-9PM, and culminate with a collection of uplifting dance and party music with performances and surprises from 9-2AM.

Sidetrack opened in 1982. Everyone must be at least 21 years of age to enter.
