Chicago Pride Fest 2018 is less than two months away, and today, organizers are kicking off the annual buzz leading up to the festivities by announcing the entertainment acts pegged to take the stage this year.

Chicago Police are searching for a hit-and-run driver that killed a 56-year-old woman Thursday night in Boystown.

Joe Lewis looked like he was ready for the beach when he stepped on stage at Sidetrack in the Chicago finals of the 5th annual Stoli Key West Cocktail Classic on Wednesday night, April 11, with his white pants and teal, short-sleeve, button-down shirt sprinkled with shark images all over.

Two forcible-entry burglaries were reported in Boystown late Monday and early Tuesday, according to CWBChicago.com.

Steve Grand, Morgana Love and Lorena Herrera are among the artists performing at Vallarta Pride, Puerto Vallarta's annual LGBT Pride celebration.

It was a standing-room only school board meeting Monday in Burlington, Illinois when hundreds of students, parents and faculty members showed support for a gay teacher reprimanded after receiving flowers from his husband.

A Delaware man said he was called a homophobic slur and was attacked by members of a University of Delaware fraternity during an off-campus party last Friday.

Two studies released this week show that LGBT youth are at greater risk for depression and suicidal thoughts than their peers.

The Human Rights Campaign (HRC), the nation's largest LGBT rights advocate, on Thursday launched a campaign to expose Vice President Mike Pence's long history of "anti-LGBTQ animus."
