Considering the fact that nearly 900,000 people attended this year's Gay Pride Parade, most of the attendees were well-behaved.
However, there were a few hiccups along the way.
For the most part, the Chicago Police Department, given their limited resources, did a fantastic job of keeping things under control.
Although the department was stretched beyond its means, the officers assigned to the parade worked their asses off to keep everyone safe.
If you didn't go to the parade, here's a sampling of what you missed.
Videos from the event are at the end of this article.
