ABC 7 Celebrates Pride: Fun and Fabulous!

For the past 16 years, ABC 7 has been the only Chicago station to proudly produce and broadcast the Pride Parade. Although the parade will not take place this year, the celebration of Chicago’s LGBTQ+ will continue on ABC 7 during a fun hour of musical performances, tributes, zany highlights of past parades and celebrity appearances from some of the biggest names who call Chicago home.
Hosted by ABC 7’s entertainment reporter/190 NORTH host Janet Davies, and ABC 7 Eyewitness News morning anchor Terrell Brown, the program is being dedicated to Chicago LGBTQ+ First Responders battling the COVID-19 pandemic. Several of these everyday heroes will share their first-person experiences. There will also be a special tribute to Richard Pfeiffer, founder and organizer of Chicago’s Pride Parade for 50 years until his death last October. His courage and pioneering spirit made the parade possible.
Entertaining performances from 16 Candles, Chicago’s premiere 80’s cover band; Katie Kadan, Chicago native and 2019 “The Voice” finalist; and Haley Reinhart, Wheeling native and former “American Idol” finalist will be a special treat.

Virtual 2K Pride

Founded in the bedroom of seventeen-year-old Kiara Fox, Virtual Pride has snowballed into a youth-driven grassroots movement, arising from the unprecedented effects of COVID-19. While we can no longer gather in person, we know that now more than ever, the LGBTQ+ community needs to come together to celebrate our lives and our love. Virtual pride unites creators from around the world and across media platforms to provide not just a party but a movement, featuring viral artists, activists, and educators. Virtual Pride provides a month-long event that allows each person to participate, celebrate, and show off their pride.
