Our Story

The Chicago History Museum is a platform for community voices that preserve the past and mold the future。 To us, Chicago is more than just a city – it is a living historical entity, as dynamic as ever, always inviting exploration。


One of the main directives of the OUT at CHM committee is to tell the stories of people who live a range of sexual identities and gender expressions within the larger urban context of Chicago and to discuss how and why the physical body matters to LGBT history; the evolution of the queer family; the interaction of people in social spaces with political consequences; and the queer body politic, a movement full of promise and struggle.


This popular and provocative series delves into the storied history of Chicago’s LGBTQ communities。
