The Windy City Pride organization ( formerly The Windy City Black Pride ) has become the largest gay, non-profit Pride event in the Midwest for people of color. The events have been held under various names since since 1997. See www.thewindycitypride.org .
The Windy City Pride Organization announces plans for 2005. Scheduled for Independence Weekend, they invite people to join them in 'Celebrating the Power of You' June 30-July 4.
