You've probably heard of Chicago's infamous Northhalsted Market Days. This annual two-day event takes place every August and is the Midwest's largest street festival. More than 300,000 gays attend each year, although there might be a few straights mixed in there too. You can enjoy music from local bands and a dance floor, plus food, merchandise, public-service and corporate tents. There's also plenty of action in the area's more than 20 bars. Over the past 30 years (!), numerous big-name performers have taken the stage there, including Glee star Darren Criss, Olivia Newton-John and Margaret Cho. This year's acts included Wilson Phillips, Erasure's Andy Bell and the wondrous Lynda Carter.
Some gay porn stars have also been known to show their face (and much more) in the renowned Boystown section of Lakeview. In case you follow along on the Twitter machine, this year Tommy Defendi, Tom Wolfe, Austin Wilde, Ray Han, Felix Warner and Arnaud Chagall brought the hotness and live tweeted throughout the weekend. Well, we didn't see any of them, but we did spot some of these everyday cuties. Enjoy, and see you next year!
