Home to one of the largest LGBT communities in the Midwestern U.S., Boystown is a bustling neighborhood in West Lakeview. It has hosted Chicago’s annual Pride Parade since 1971 with over 1 million people attending each year! The neighborhood has charming coffee shops, cool record stores and trendy boutiques along its tree-lined streets. Known for its comedy clubs and offbeat theaters, the area also draws young, hip crowds to its vibrant cocktail bars and nightclubs.
Part of the proceeds of this tour will be donated to help maintain the grounds of Space Park, the first stop on this tour. The Northalsted community is always seeking doners from individuals and organizations/establishments in the area for this specific purpose. Thank you for going on this tour and supporting this cause!
