On Sunday, June 28th, The Puerto Rican Cultural Center participated in the 46th annual Chicago Pride Parade. An estimated, 1 million people attended for Sunday’s celebrations, and The PRCC was one of the Latin@ frontrunners of the parade. The city’s celebrations come as the Supreme Court made its landmark same sex marriage decision earlier in the week, striking down the Federal Defense of Marriage Act, which defined marriage as a union between a man and a woman. The PRCC’s float featured a Latin American themed contingent that showcased flags and cultural attire from different Latin American countries. Over 100 people joined the PRCC to march.
