Cook County Pride Celebration returns for 2021.

The Cook County Pride Committee today announced that Pride celebrations are returning for
2021. This year’s theme, “Celebrate in Solidarity,” highlights the joy of embracing and affirming
those we love after the long darkness of the pandemic.

Please join Cook County citizens, business owners, families, clergy members, public servants,
artists, and elected officials on Saturday, June 26, 2021 at 5:00 p.m.

Starting from the Harbor Park, this condensed event will feature a short march, speakers from the community, live music,
and joyful socializing. All community members are cordially invited to celebrate together and
show support for the LGBTQ+ community.

Those attending the event are asked to follow all laws, treat each other with respect, and use
appropriate language. Some in the community cannot receive the vaccine for health reasons, so
masks are requested.

Pride month commemorates the Stonewall Riots in 1969, where LGBTQ+ New Yorkers rose up
against unfair and discriminatory laws. Ever since, LGBTQ+ people have rallied in June to
protest government indifference to the AIDS epidemic, Don’t Ask/Don’t Tell, marriage bans,
myriad anti-transgender policies, and more.

Pride is not only a rallying call for LGBTQ+ people and their allies, but a celebration of joy in the midst of the struggle for equality.

Anyone with questions, as well as those hoping to organize next year’s expanded events, are encouraged to contact Nora Huxtable at
