Chicago Rainbow Pride Crosswalks
Northalsted Chicago’s 14 Rainbow Pride Crosswalks were completed in May 2019 just in time for Pride Month and the 50th Anniversary of the historic Stonewall Inn riots that launched the LGBTQ+ pride movement.
Together they are the longest rainbow crosswalk project in the world, spanning over 1/2 mile. Funding for the project came entirely from public donations at Northalsted Market Days & Chicago Pride Fest.
