Market Days is the largest LGBT street festival in the Midwest since 1980. The event is known for the performances of numerous live acts on a total of four stages. Betty Who, MAX, Todrick Hall and Kristine W among others performed this year.
Illinois Office of Tourism also took the opportunity to present an art installation by Chicago-based artist Matthew Hoffman. The wooden sculpture reads #amazingforall. With this hashtag the state woos LGBT travellers from all over the world.

A ridiculous amount of coffee was consumed in the process of building this project. Add some fuel if you'd like to keep us going!
