⁣With the absence of the Chicago Pride parade since the Stonewall Uprising in 1969, WE SEE* YOU is a moment of digital celebration and a look into what pride means to the LGBTQ+ community of Chicago. ⁣

⁣WE SEE* YOU centers around our fundamental belief in the positive impact and importance of LGBTQ+ visibility, for our continuous progression. ⁣ ⁣*Through visibility, we want to create positive awareness and show the breadth of diversity within the Chicago LGBTQ+ community - whether that be diversity in race/ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity, pronouns, age, and so on. ⁣

⁣We see you, and you are beautiful.⁣

We also want to acknowledge that there would be NO PRIDE without the Black queer and trans trailblazers who paved the road for where we stand today. We are perpetually grateful and stand firmly with ALL BIPOC. This project also wouldn’t exist without you! ⁣*WE SEE* YOU stands as an ongoing project, as we understand we have only scratched the surface for LGBTQ+ representation in Chicago. We want to meet more of you and continuously add to the WE SEE* YOU project in order to fulfill and motivate the continuous visibility of Chicago’s LGBTQ+ community.
