Activists gather for a rally calling for the passage of the marriage equality legislation currently pending before the state house of representatives.

As supporters of same sex marriage waved their rainbow flags a variety of speakers pushed for action on the stalled bill.

Following the rally, participants marched north past the Taste of Chicago to Washington Square Park, the site of the beginning of the first Pride Parade in Chicago.
