The Chicago 44th Annual Pride Parade is scheduled for Sunday, June 30, at 12 p.m., according to a PrideChicago press release. The parade will start at the corner of Broadway and Montrose traveling the same route as last year: from the Broadway/Montrose corner, proceeding south on Broadway, then south on Halsted, then east on Belmont, then south on Broadway and then east on Diversey to Cannon Drive, in Lincoln Park.

Mayor Rahm Emanuel, like his predecessors, has named June as "Pride Month" in Chicago.

The grand marshal for the parade is former NFL player Wade Davis

Each year, Pride Month features dozens of different events organized by various community organizations, groups and individuals. Every year, the Chicago June Pride Month Calendar is featured on PRIDEChicago's website and in the Chicago Pride Guide booklet, as well as in community publications and websites. An updated version of the calendar is on PRIDEChicago's website, ChicagoPrideCalendar.org .

The theme for this year's Pride Celebrations, which InterPride (the international association of pride groups) suggested, is "Pride 365." An alternative suggested theme is "Pride 365..' Have Pride Year 'Round." Parade entries as well as groups sponsoring Pride Month events have the option of using the international or alternate theme as well as their own.

In addition, the Montrose Rocks celebration—an annual event focusing on the African-American LGBTQ community—will take place immediately after the parade.
