Chicago Red Dress Party is Just Weeks Away!

The History….While it’s hard to trace the roots of a long-standing tradition, we’ll do our best to bring you the history of this grand standing event.  In the early 1990’s, two gentlemen were dating when they both contracted HIV/AIDS.  To show their love and dedication they vowed that when one of them passed away, the other would attend their funeral adorned in a red dress.  From this promise the concept of the Red Dress Party began.  Currently there are Red Dress Parties all over the United States from Seattle, Washington to Chicago, IL.  Oh and yes… You must wear your best red attire to attend!
