Printing pride

Two U of C students are covering pride movements in Chicago this summer.

Ever been curious about the Chicagoans doing their best to challenge deeply entrenched structures of sexual power in our society, but, unlike the U of C's Lauren Berlant, haven't felt ready to jump into the thick of it? Not to worry, two student journalists have that beat covered.

Mitch Montoya, '11, has been writing for Time Out Chicago's Gay & Lesbian section, where he recounts what it's like to dance so hard "my quads are on fire" on a float at Sunday's Gay Pride Parade.

And, interning this summer for Newcity, Ella Christoph, also '11, writes this report on the second annual Chicago Cougar Convention, which was definitely not a gathering of feral cats.
