Chicago History Museum
"Out at CHM" committee member
2009 to present

I am currently serving on this volunteer committee that advises the Chicago History Museum on public programs, exhibitions, and other projects related to the history of Chicago's LGBT community.

Along with fellow-member Coya Paz, I co-organized "Are We Still Fabulous?" a public program held on January 22, 2016 that explored changes in LGBTQ identity in the wake of nationwide marriage equality and other cultural shifts.

One important milestone of the committee was the opening of
Out in Chicago a pioneering public exhibition chronicling over 150 years of Chicago's LBGT history (June 2011—March 2012).
