    I went to my very first pride parade and it was amazing. I met so many nice people and everyone was so happy. The feeling of support really made me proud. It made me want to get involved in the community.

    If you are debating whether or not to go and you've never been before I recommend going.

    That is all lol.

    HAPPY PRIDE!!!

    Glad to see you had such a great time and saw it for yourself without relying on the negative things said on this site about pride. Chicago is certainly one the funnest prides I've attended.

    You have another chance to go to a kind-of-like pride event this year. NorthHalsted Market Days will be the second weekend of August in Chicago, just about a 3 hour drive for you from Grand Haven. It's a pretty good time.

    I struggled with whether or not to go because I'd heard many negative things about it but when I went I didn't see any of the things I was warned about.

    I will definitely go to Market Days

    I checked out SF Pride today (my first one too). I was expecting it to be cold out there, but the weather was perfect. There was definitely some "interesting" views. I saw boobies and penises on the streets!

    Yeahh, I actually had a really good time at Chicago Pride this year. I felt the energy a lot more. Last two times I went, I didn't have such a good time. This year I went with close friends so that made a big difference I believe.

    I went alone this year, next year I'll try to go with a small group of friends.
