BUFFALO GROVE — The Pinta Pride Project, organizers of Buffalo Grove’s first Pride celebration, has unveiled the official poster for the Sunday, June 2, event.
BG Pride inviting any group or business that supports “love, acceptance and equality for all.” Business, religious organizations, school groups and clubs, families, sports teams and more are welcome.
Residents in the northern suburb of Chicago started organizing when Molly Pinta, a student at Twin Groves Middle School, was inspired to start a local Pride after seeing Aurora’s inaugural Pride celebration.
Student groups will be able to participate for free. Non-profits will have a $25 fee and business can apply for $100.
There are some rules for parade entries:
- All floats and walkers must be family-friendly, fully clothed and advertising a positive message
- Political views must be positive (Ex: Equality for all vs. Impeach Trump)
- Safety regulations must be followed per the village of Buffalo Grove and will be provided to all participants
