An antigay march tried to intrude upon the Chicago Gay Pride
Parade on June 27, which prompted a chain of events where three
pro-queer activists were arrested and now face felony charges.
A march organized by queer and pro-queer anarchists proceeded
from Chicago's Uptown neighborhood through to the
neighborhood of Boys Town and sought to criticize co-opted and
capitalized aspects of the Chicago Gay Pride Parade. But the
march wound up confronted by a counter-march led by Anti-Gay
bigots who were trying to enter the Pride Parade near the
intersection of Clark and Halsted.

Police intervened to break up the confrontation. None of the
homophobic counter-marchers evidently were arrested, but three
pro-queer march participants were arrested. The three arrestees,
who had nothing to do with the altercation, nevertheless face
felony charges.

They were held overnight at a district station then transfered to
the County jail.

A hearing took place today, the felony charges were upheld, and
bond is set at $7,000 for the three. So far about $5,500 has been
raised. Bond has been posted for two of the three arrested and
we're seeking $1,500 to get the third man released.

Benefit film showings and a party/concert are being planned for
this week.
