TRQPiTECA Queer Pride Chicago 2019 is a FREE, ALL-AGES festival celebrating LGBTQIA existence and resilience at the beautiful and iconic Ping Tom Memorial Park in Chinatown. It will take place on Sunday, June 30, 2019, from 3pm - 10pm. This event was selected to be a part of Chicago Parks District's Nights Out in the Park, which features arts and cultural programming in parks throughout the Chicagoland area.
Programming with include two stages of live music, DJs & dancing, performances, art installations and visuals, as well as vendors, health & wellness providers, and community organizations. TRQPITECA Queer Pride 2019 will coincide with a teen-led Queer Family Picnic and Open Mic from 11am-4pm also at Ping Tom Memorial Park, sponsored by the Chicago Parks District.
Our goal is to provide an inclusive space for people of all ages to uplift and affirm each other, to receive community care through health and wellness resources, and to enjoy our community's artist and personal expression. Because the majority of LGBTQIA funding and resources go towards community on Chicago's North Side, we are hoping to provide space on the South Side that celebrates all identities, not just those centered by mainstream Pride celebrations.
