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.”
"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
