Windy City Times is distributing this edition via our wonderful delivery crew, but only to open locations around the city, and our boxes. It is also available as a PDF download on the top right of our website, www.windycitymediagroup.com, and past issues are under the archives section.
It is almost certain the city will create stronger social distancing rules that will limit our ability to deliver a physical copy of the paper soon, so upcoming issues may just be online.
If we are forced to shut down print because we need to obey orders and protect our team, our full PDF will be available to replace the print for now.
Windy City Times will be facing a difficult economic situation with the loss of advertising. Help us pay our team by donating to
About Windy City Times
For more than three decades Windy City Times has covered LGBTQ news and entertainment. No one covers Chicago's LGBT community more comprehensively, whether about politics and crime, or entertainment and culture. Believing in community journalism, Windy City Times does not believe in creating a paywall where people have to pay to read articles. However to do our work, we rely on support not just from advertisers but from readers and the community.
