Last year's gay Pride parade in Mexico City.

Miami already has had its Sizzle. Dallas has done its Razzle Dazzle. And Milwaukee, of course, celebrated for three days at PrideFest. But dozens more LGBT Pride celebrations crowd the calendar from now through the summer and into the fall.

One of the largest Pride parades takes place in Chicago on June 29, a week after the two-day Chicago Pride Festival on North Halsted Street that features Thelma Houston, Jennifer Hudson and Maya, among others.

The 45th annual parade — always the last Sunday in June — begins at noon at Broadway and Montrose in Lakeview. The parade proceeds south on Broadway, then south on Halsted, east on Belmont, south on Broadway and east on Diversey to Cannon Drive.

More than 200 entries are registered for a parade that’s typically cheered on by more than 200,000 people assembled on sidewalks, at storefronts and outdoor cafes and partying on balconies.

Another big regional event, Minneapolis’ 2014 Ashley Rukes GLBT Pride Parade, takes place the same day along Hennepin Avenue in downtown Minneapolis. The celebration includes a two-day festival in Loring Park, a Margaret Cho concert, a family picnic, a rainbow run and marriage ceremonies.
