A portion of Clark Street near some of the many businesses owned by gay activist Chuck Renslow will be given an honorary dedication in his name Saturday, May 19, 4 p.m., 5025 N. Clark.
The City of Chicago and Full Kit Gear invite the public to join Renslow's partner, Ron Ehemann and family, the leather and LGBTQ communities for the unveiling of an honorary street sign marking Clark Street from Ainslie to Winnemac as Chuck Renslow Way.
Renslow was 87 years old when he died June 29, 2017. Among his businesses located on that block had been The Gold Coast, GayLife newspaper and Man's Country bathhouse, which closed a few months after his death.
