“Diane White captured…Chicago’s 7th Annual Pride Parade,” WBEZ

University of Illinois at Chicago photography student Diane Alexander White captured the scene of Chicago’s 7th Annual Pride Parade in 1976.

Alexander White said the parade, in what’s now called the Lakeview neighborhood, was an intimate event of expression and liberation after what she called the tumultuous 1960s.

Her photos from that day will be on display beginning June 28 at The Hoxton, 200 N. Green St., in the Fulton Market neighborhood. The exhibit runs through Sept. 8. It is also presented by the Chicago-based Johalla Projects, which exhibits and curates art.

Here are some of the photos Alexander White snapped at the 1976 parade with her memories.
