For everyone at my school, it had always been a tradition to go down to the finish line to cheer on the racers, many of which were our fellow classmates and professors.

Flash forward to the night of Thursday, April 18th, 2013; I am huddled in a corner with three of my friends in our dormitory - Forest.

This hot mid-July day started just like any other in Alabama.

The event that I went to this summer represented a groups identity and was known as the Chicago Pride Parade.

My grandparents were at first hesitant in letting us go down to the city for the Pride parade because of the Orlando shooting that just happened about two weeks prior. But my friends and I convinced my grandparents to drive us down to the city to see the parade.
