In honor of the late Fred Rogers’s birthday, March 20th marks Won’t You Be My Neighbor Day. Just like Mr. Rogers, on this day, people are encouraged to show kindness and gratitude to their neighbors and anyone they cross paths with. It’s a beautiful day in the Gayborhood, and we hope you’ll come be our neighbors on Saturday, March 18th!
21+. No cover; it’s Sidetrack!
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.
