Country artist CHELY WRIGHT will be the Grand Marshal for this year’s CHICAGO PRIDE PARADE. The parade takes place on JUNE 27th and begins at Belmont Avenue and Halsted Street in BOYSTOWN.
PRIDECHICAGO Coordinator RICHARD PFEIFFER said: "She represents this whole segment of the community that is not always really open about being GLBT (gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender). Country music fans live in big cities, live in small towns, but often folks in that genre aren't real open about being gay. For her to come out, it was pretty great."
