Will Chicago’s Daley Plaza have an erection?

Staff Blog, Festivus, Projects 0 Comments

After conquering Tallahassee in 2013, and with Arkansas, Lansing, and DC already on the table, we’ve turned our attention to the State of Illinois.

First up, we fired off a request to the State of Illinois (Capitol Rotunda) … next up, the windy city.

Here’s the email we sent to the City Clerk, CCing just about everyone.

My name is Chaz Stevens, Executive Director of The Humanity Fund.

I am seeking information regarding installation of our 2015 Gay Pride Festivus Pole at Daley Plaza.  We’d like the pole’s erection to near the Baby Jesus … as you never know, the little one might want to dance the night away!

The 2015 Gay Pride Festivus Pole is approximately 6’6” tall, painted with purple-glitter, covered in the rainbow colors of diversity, and topped with an 8” disco ball.  

There are no moving parts, no power requirements, but plenty of opportunities to Air One’s Grievances.

I’m including a couple of links to get you folks up to speed, just in case you dialed in from another galaxy (here, here, here, here, and here).

And, for your edification, here are a few pictures of the pole in action.

Yeah, it’s pretty gay looking! Ain’t that the coolest?

I’m expecting my application to be accepted in short order, otherwise I’m gonna have some problems with you people!


Happy Festivus, see you soon!
