The 2018 Pride Kickoff Brunch is Sunday, June 3, followed by Brunch Remixed, at Venue West,
an innovative space for creative exploration, at 221 N. Paulina Street, Chicago.


Help Equality Illinois launch Pride Month with a celebration of the leaders
who help us advance LGBTQ equality all year round and party through the afternoon.


Our special guest speaker is former Houston Mayor Annise Parker, the first out LGBTQ big city mayor,
who is now the President and CEO of Victory Fund, which is working to elect LGBTQ leaders throughout the U.S.



We will recognize 2018 Equality Illinois Community Pride Honorees for their strong, ongoing leadership on LGBTQ issues: Nicole Bashor, who spearheads support for political candidates in Illinois who back pro-LGBTQ policies, and Saúl Aviña Jr., who has spent a decade working on HIV treatment and prevention programs.
