Record Turnout for Chicago's Gay Pride Parade


Despite disappointment over the failure to pass a same-sex marriage bill during the spring legislative session, a record crowd turned out Sunday for Chicago’s annual Pride Parade and cheered the large contingent of politicians who took part.

 

Governor Pat Quinn, Attorney General Lisa Madigan and Comptroller Judy Baar Topinka were among those participating in the event, which drew more than 850,000 spectators.

 

Gay rights activists also announced plans for a “March on Springfield” in October, to coincide with the start of the fall veto session, where they hope the marriage bill can be brought for a final vote.
