Feathers. Sequins. Hot Shorts. The 42nd Annual Pride Parade attracted an enormous crowd of supporters who lined the streets from Belmont to Diversey. The redline was chaos with rainbow crowds jamming onto each train, rushing to get to the parade route. From glamour to goth, everyone was accepted and made the normal everyday attire yearn for some spice. One of our favorite looks was seen by two women on a motorcycle laced up in corsets and platform leather boots. Large corporations took a stand for equal rights that had the crowds roaring. Some of the fan favorites included: Obama supporters, ABC, Google, YouTube, and an astounding group of native teachers. -Shelby Steiner
