At GoPride.com, Sunday means that it's time to look back at the week in gay news - in and out of Chicago - as covered by the GoPride.com News Staff. The top local and national stories of interest as ranked by popularity on the network from April 14 - April 20, 2019.

Former GOP Representative Aaron Schock was allegedly spotted making out with another man and putting his hands down the guy's shorts according to multiple media reports and a new photo circulating on Twitter.

 

The 2019 Aurora Pride Parade is back on after the group sponsoring the event was able to raise more than the necessary $17,000 in less than 24 hours.

When organizers started planning the inaugural Pride In The Park, they built a diverse list of about 100 artists to contact, GoPride.com has confirmed.

 

A small-city mayor has his eyes set on the White House. I'm the proud son of South Bend, Indiana, and I am running for President of the United States," declared the latest entrant to the 2020 contest while standing under a banner that simply read "Pete 2020". As the first viable openly LGBT candidate for president, he joined 18 other Democrats to challenge Donald Trump for the leadership of the free world.

Best known for his role on the final season of Glee, Rilan takes a satirical look at Hollywood in his new song, "Love or Drugs," which came out March 22 and with the corresponding video released 10 days later.

In a major reversal, organizers for the 2019 Aurora Pride Parade announced Tuesday that the event is back on if a new fundraising goal is met.

Performing over the weekend at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival in California, Ariana Grande ended her performance with a giant projection of a rainbow flag, a symbol of the LGBT community.

 

Just two months before it was supposed to start, the suburban activist group Indivisible Aurora suddenly pulled the plug on the 2019 Aurora Pride Festival one year after the event's successful launch.

The show will go on and, yes, there will be a special ceremony to honor Mark Nagel, the co-owner of the annual GRABBYS Award Show who passed away unexpectedly this past February, GoPride.com has confirmed.

As part of a BBC documentary, Pope Francis told UK comedian Stephen K. Amos that gay people have dignity.
