OUT At CHM | Our Bars
Thursday Jan 26 5:30pm-8:00pm in Chicago
Our Bars: Community, Safety, Violence, Sex, and Activism

Bars and clubs have long been gathering places where people found like-minded companionship and social circles. This was particularly the case as LGBTQ communities coalesced in Chicago. Join community activist and Sidetrack The Video Bar owner Art Johnston and other long-standing community members as they discuss how a movement developed out of a few watering holes. The panel will talk about how bars in Chicago, since the 1950s and earlier, have been places of community and safety, sometimes broken by police violence and often determined by politics of gender and race.

Cost: $20, $15 members and students
