Chicago’s Disability Pride Parade is a celebration and recognition of the diversity of people living with disabilities. This year’s theme is “Disability Pride Will Not Be Denied.” Chicago-born painter and disability advocate Genevieve Ramos will serve as the parade grand marshal.

The parade will start at 401 S. Plymouth Court and continue half a block west on Van Buren before going north on Dearborn. The route continues on Dearborn until reaching Daley Plaza where a variety of post-parade festivities will take place.

The Disability Pride Parade in Chicago began in 2004 and is one of the oldest events in the country.
