Pride 2021: Illinois’ Got Talent Finalists!

We are thrilled to announce the Pride 2021: Illinois’ Got Talent Finalists:

Turns out, the LGBTQ community in Illinois has too much talent to fit only five finalists. Ties in two regions mean that all ticket purchasers for the event will get to vote for one of the following SEVEN finalists:

        • From the Chicago region (TIED!): musical performances Ren Braceros and Kevin Mandla
        • From the Collar Counties region (TIED!): musical performances from Mikey Everything and London Anderson
        • From the North region: a short story from Joel Shoemaker
        • From the Central region: a musical performance from Luke McQuillan
        • From the South region: visual art from Kane Crain


Support these artists and the work of Equality Illinois by buying your ticket TODAY!

(Remember, every ticket purchased = 1 vote for the winner of the $500 cash prize.)
