This weekend marks the culmination of Pride month in Chicago. A glance at Slowdown gives just a glimpse at the gay old times one can have over the next few days. In the midst of all the fun, though, it's easy to forget that life isn't always so easy. To wit: anti-gay comments led to a fatal stabbing over the weekend, with the alleged killer complaining as he ran from the scene, "I got faggot blood on me." RIP, Antonio "Sydney" Wright.
