On Oct. 18, Legacy Project's dedication celebration concluded at Boystown bar Sidetrack. WGN-TV's Sean Lewis hosted.
Community members gathered Oct. 11 for the unveiling of seven new plaques along Halsted Street's Legacy Walk.
Legacy Project officials and volunteers, local activists and students from Lincoln Park High School were on hand to pay tribute to the new inductees: Cole Porter, Sally Ride, "Babe" Didrikson Zaharias, Father Mychal Judge, David Kato, Audre Lorde and the Stonewall Riots.
Special guest for the event was WGN weatherman Tom Skilling, who spoke passionately about his reasons for sponsoring the plaque for Sally Ride.
Retired Judge Tom Chiola also addressed attendees, discussing his commitment to supporting the Legacy Project and its role of educating the next generation about LGBTQ history.
