Buffalo Grove Pride Parade happening June 2

The Buffalo Grove Pride Parade will take place Saturday, June 2, 10 a.m.-12 p.m.

BG Pride is inviting any group or business that supports "love, acceptance and equality for all, according to Illinois Eagle. Business, religious organizations, school groups and clubs, families, sports teams and more are welcome.

Residents in the northern suburb of Chicago started organizing when Molly Pinta, a student at Twin Groves Middle School, was inspired to start a local Pride after seeing Aurora's inaugural Pride celebration.
