Gay Pride at Touche

David Boyer

CHICAGO – Gay Pride Week is here!  Lots of guys coming to town to celebrate Gay Pride in Chicago means it will be a huge weekend at Touché. 

We are planning to celebrate all weekend long.
We kick off our Pride Celebrations with The Great Lakes Bears on Friday night.  Just in time for Pride, we have new Touché/Great Lakes Bears t-shirts available at the bar..  We will raffle off some of the shirts on Friday along with other great bear prizes.  It wouldn’t be a Great Lakes Bears party without free pizza.  We’ll have a stack delivered at midnight!  Start your Gay Pride Weekend with the Great Lakes Bears.

Our monthly Foot Friends Party is this Saturday from 6-10pm in the Club Room.  With all the out of towners for Pride, there is sure to be lots of new feet and new faces to check out this evening.  We have gift for each guest and some fun raffle prizes.  Show your foot fetish pride and come meet other Foot Friends at Touché.

Mr Chicago Leather 2012 Angel Velez will be hosting our Leather Pride Party on Saturday with more great giveaway and raffle prizes.  Once again Angel will host a Best Bugle Contest with $50 cash and other prizes to the winner at midnight.  Hey, if you got it, be proud and show it off, you could be our winner.  Join us and show off your Pride in your leather (if it’s really hot, a simple leather jock will do)

If you want to parade your pride, come join me and members of Chicago’s leather/fetish clubs and the Great Lakes Bears in Chicago’s Gay Pride Parade on Sunday.  Look for the crowd of leatherfolk, rubber pervs and bears in the line up on Montrose WEST of Broadway before the noontime step off.  We’ll parade down Broadway, Halsted, across Belmont and back down on  Broadway.  Everyone is welcome to march with us and show off your pride.

After the parade we’ll be heading back up to Touché. Why bother with the crowds and lines in Boystown?  Come on up and join your friends at the Touché for our annual Post Parade Beer Bust & Cookout.  All day long we will serve up 50¢ drafts of Bud & Bud Light.  For your non-drinkers we offer $1 sodas as well.  The Club Room will be open for celebrating Touché style.  Once I get back up there, we’ll fire up the grills and offer tons of burgers, dogs and all the rest to refuel you so you can enjoy the party on into the night. (Our After The Beach Party and Movie Night return next Sunday)

The heat is really on for the next few days.  Remember we offer up $2.50 PBR longnecks every Monday-Thursday night and the AC is working just fine.  Let Touché be your cooling center till the heat breaks. And of course your spot to celebrate your Pride!
