All faculty, staff, students and alumni are invited to join DePaul University to walk in the 2022 Chicago Pride Parade. The parade kicks off on Sunday, June 26, at noon at Montrose Avenue and Broadway in the Uptown neighborhood. You can sign up to walk with the DePaul delegation online. Family members, partners and loved ones also are welcome to join.​

Parade participants are asked to arrive on site by 11 a.m. Each person walking with the university will be provided with a DePaul Pride 2022 shirt. Blue Demon walkers will hand out items to the crowd. Further details surrounding the meeting location will be shared closer to the parade. 

The 51st annual Chicago Pride Parade marches through the city's Boystown neighborhood. The parade winds its way through the north side of the city, ending near the intersection of Diversey Parkway and Sheridan Road in Lincoln Park. Pride Month in June highlights Chicago's vibrant LGBTQIA+ community. The energy in the city peaks on Pride Weekend, which traditionally falls on the last weekend of June each year, to commemorate the Stonewall Riots.
