  • Nathan Petithonne, 18, carries a sign that says "Queer Black Lives Matter" at Chicago's Pride Parade on Sunday.

Sunday's Pride Parade celebrated 50 years since the Stonewall uprising which sparked the modern LGBTQ rights movement and 49 years since Chicago hosted its first Pride Parade on June 27, 1970. It was cut short due to afternoon thunderstorms, but not before photographer Kathleen Hinkel captured a few of the day's memorable moments.
