This history of Chicago's gay community offers, dare we say it, plenty of pride.
--Time Out Chicago
Lavishly illustrated with historical color and black and white photographs, and drawing on the scholarly, historical, and journalistic contributions of a breadth of authorities on Chicago's LGBT culture and scene, this is a first-ever, one-of-a-kind overview of Chicago's LGBT community and its history.

"Out and Proud reveals the varied patterns that make up Chicago gay history and that there are parts of that history we might want to resurrect."- Yasmin Nair

"...Out and Proud does not aim to deliver the kind of comprehensive history that The Gay Metropolis or Gay L.A. offered New York and Los Angeles, but rather a vivid snapshot for a generation stuck on thinking LGBT history began with those rainbow-ringed pylons lining North Halsted Street."- Jason Heidemann
