The 45th annual Chicago Pride parade will have a grand marshal who’s done a little of everything, though he’s still in his 20s.
Will Sheridan, the grand marshal for the June 29 parade, is an athlete, musician, writer and activist, among other things.
He played college basketball at Villanova and pro basketball overseas, and discussed his decision to come out with ESPN’s Bob Ley on the network’s “Outside the Lines” program.
Sheridan also has covered music and night life for Source Magazine, and he now is a recording artist himself.
In addition, he has helped to set up a non-profit, Riuru Rising, that assists children in Kenya.
