Windy City Queer: LGBTQ Dispatches from the Third Coast Release Party
Chicago’s contributions to LGBTQ literature have been invaluable yet largely
uncelebrated over the last century. This groundbreaking anthology charts a map of queer
Chicago and showcases its thriving urban arts community, which boasts a unique history,
legacy, and sensibility deeply rooted in the urban Midwest. For tonight’s program, editor
Kathie Bergquist is joined by contributors to the book: an outstanding array of award-
winning poets and writers culled from Chicago’s queer literary landscape.
Refreshments will be served.
