Although the Chicago Pride Parade will not take place this year, the celebration of the LGBTQ+ community will continue on ABC 7 during an hour of musical performances, tributes, highlights of past parades and celebrity appearances.
"ABC 7 Celebrates Pride: Fun and Fabulous" will air Sunday, June 28, at 4 and 11 p.m. Janet Davies and Terrell Brown will co-host the event.
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, the founder and organizer of Chicago's Pride Parade for 50 years until his death last October.
There will also be performances from local '80s cover band 16 Candles; Katie Kadan, a Chicago native and a 2019 finalist on the NBC show The Voice; and Haley Reinhart, a Wheeling native and a former American Idol finalist.
