Nostalgia just isn’t what it used to be… When we turn over a new calendar and start afresh in the cold winter months, we often set resolutions as to how we are going to change ourselves. In order to do so, the Wilde Cabaret is spending this January reflecting upon where we are and how we got here. “Remember When?” is an ode to our struggles, our successes, our fond memories, our traumas… everything that made us who we are today.
About this Season
This year’s season is entitled Rise, which encapsulates the LGBTQ community’s ongoing struggles and its persistence to resolve them, whether that be to survive, to thrive, or to live in harmony with each other. Lakeside Pride is no different, and as we’ve adapted to the pandemic, we find ourselves stronger and more resilient than ever. We continue to be a welcoming family for our members and friends across the Chicagoland area.
We’ve risen to the challenge of keeping our community safe, healthy, strong, and exuberant. We’ve overcome adversity from the pandemic and societal unrest, and continue to use our platform to inspire our members and audiences to join us in our revitalization. We still have lots to do, and many barriers to overcome. But by banding together we can continue to change hearts and minds, grow as a community, and heroically rise to any occasion.
