Editorial Reviews

Review



“The histories of gay New York, gay Los Angeles, gay San Francisco, and even gay Philadelphia have been recounted in recent books. With this lush, impeccably designed coffee-table collection of essays and art, Chicago makes it to the lavender map.”
—Richard Labonte

"A vivid snapshot for a generation stuck on thinking LGBT history began with those rainbow-ringed pylons lining North Halsted Street.”
Time Out Chicago

"Out and Proud in Chicago rewards every type of reader… At last, Chicago gets (and deserves) its long-neglected due as the city where LGBT life flourished beyond the footlights."
—James V. Carmichael, Jr, Professor, Department of Library and Information Studies, School of Information, UNC Greensboro

"I dare say editor Tracy Baim and a string of contributors achieved far more than they set out to do. They produced a well-crafted perspective and record of Chicago's gay history and culture and a model for achieving such a work for any significant segment of the city's population."
—Kenan Heise, Chicago author and journalist

Format: Hardcover
This 224 page book is the worse misrepresentation on GLBT Chicagoans to hit the market. It's full of male-bashing homophobic [...] and self-loathing dogs from Traci Baim and other so-called "lesbians" to homosexually abstinent creeps like alderman Tom Tunney and activists Otis Richardson and Max Smith.
