Just as we seemed to be nearing the end of “uncertain times”, due in large to the Covid 19 pandemic, latent threats re-emerged.
Abortion rights, Gun control, Racial Injustice, Police Violence, Trans Rights and protections all are under attack, just to name a few.
It is only through community that we will overcome these threats to our personal safety and happiness.
This year the Drag March For Change has partnered with Pride without Prejudice to join voices in protest.
This year’s march is a call to action that centers black trans voices, serves as a moment of reflection and as way for the community to move forward in solidarity.
So please answer the call and join us at 1pm on June 12, 2022 at the Belmont redline station for the Chicago Reclaim Pride March!
The official Chicago Pride parade still exists as a for profit entity and though it may claim to celebrate the LGBTQIA2+ community it appears to more so celebrate the American dollar. Through BIPOC leadership molding this event, highlighting the current issues under attack of Trans rights, women’s personal autonomy (abortion rights) , gun control, and police violence they aim to help bring an end to these never ending attacks that hinder our personal pursuit of happiness. This direct action paired with productive programming seeks to act as a summit of solidarity for every color of the LGBTQIA2+ rainbow, mirroring ourselves and the world around us to provide a focus for the future.
*Speakers List and March Route will be released.
List of Demands:
That the Chicago Pride Parade become a non-profit entity equipped with a diverse board that can serve to
guide and protect the true soul of Pride.
That violence against Trans persons becomes classified as hate crime on both a State and Federal level.
That women’s and gender non-conforming people’s right to choose abortion be protected in perpetuity.
That stricter restrictions be immediately implemented for gun control nationally.
That the Chicago City Council defund CPD by 75% and reinvest those funds into social services and community programs.
Justice* for all victims of police violence
*Justice being the abolishment of the system that took these lives and that restorative systems grow in their stead.
