Chicago Trans Pride is an independent and public gathering to celebrate the beauty, diversity, and resilience of the trans* community in Chicago. Chicago’s trans* community has a lot to be proud of in 2014 and what better way to celebrate than a lakefront beach party.
While beaches are traditionally not trans* affirming or body positive spaces, we will stake claim and join together in to be present, visible, and proud! We hope you can join us for this celebratory gathering to celebrate our trans* community and remember those we have lost.
Since the overwhelming response of over 450 people have decided to join, in order to provide safety and secure space for this Sunday and future Trans* Pride events, we must obtain a city permit. Since this is a non-sponsored, non-organization and community-led event, we need everyone who can to pitch in few dollars to make this happen. We only have about 72 hours to do this.
