Gay Travel: New Gay History Walk to Be Dedicated in Boystown, ChicagoIn recognition of October as GLBT History Month, the Board of Directors of the Legacy Project announced that the upcoming dedication of the Legacy Walk will take place on October 11, 2012, the 25th Anniversary Commemoration of National Coming-Out Day.

The Legacy Walk – to be located on one-half-mile of North Halsted Street in Chicago’s Lakeview neighborhood – will be an outdoor “museum walk” recognizing the contributions gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender (GLBT) people have made to world history and culture.

This international, multi-cultural installation will consist of a series of 18″ x 24″ cast bronze plaques affixed to the celebrated “Rainbow Pylons” which define the stretch known as the “Northalsted Corridor” as the center of Chicago’s diverse GLBT population. Each plaque will bear a laser-cast image of an inductee along with a 300-word biographical paragraph that highlights the individual’s contributions.
