— Taking the temperature of Chicago’s Pride Parade in era of Trump – James Steinbauer  (DIERSEN: From what I see, if you do not a) promote LGBTQ activity and b) badmouth Trump, you are or will be viciously marginalized a) by those who promote LGBTQ activity and b) by those who are anti-Trump..)
http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/local/breaking/ct-pride-parade-preview-20170618-story.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: In Los Angeles, the city’s decades-old pride parade was replaced with a “resist march,” and U.S. Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., led chants to impeach the president. “There are so many issues on the front burner right now, and I think you’ll see that reflected,” said Richard Pfeiffer, Chicago’s Pride Parade coordinator. “Since the change in Washington in November, LGBT people and others have been marginalized verbally and in other ways. There’s anger over that.” Pfeiffer said more than 250,000 people are expected along the parade route, and nearly 1 million could move in and out of the area surrounding the parade throughout the day.)
