Neverland Pride kicks off on Saturday, June 27 with a pool party in Boystown.

There will be a live performance bye Sasha Colby and DJ / producers Alex Acosta and Alexander will be spinning from 11:00pm – 5:00am.
“Today’s Neverland is like a Studio 54-style party,” said Anthony DiFiore. “This year’s Bougie Ball will be our biggest production ever, with over-the-top theatrics. We aim to put Chicago Pride on the map with this one.”
