Thousands gathered in Lake View for Chicago’s 49th annual Pride Parade on Sunday.

The parade — one of more than 150 being staged across the globe — commemorates the Stonewall rebellion of 1969, in which patrons of the New York City gay bar the Stonewall Inn fought back against a police raid. The events that followed gave birth to the LGBTQ+ rights movement.

Here’s a guide to everything you need to know about Sunday’s parade.
