Out & Proud in Chicago

Episode 1 of 1

Hosted by actress Jane Lynch, OUT & PROUD charts the history of Chicago's lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community from the 19th century to the present. The documentary profiles famous and unsung LGBT Chicagoans: a retired schoolteacher, a successful businessman, a community activist, a bar owner, a lawyer and a social service worker. Each recounts their own extraordinary stories of struggle and success - from coming-out experiences and supporting anti-discrimination laws to founding Chicago's earliest gay-rights organization and defying the federal government's indifference towards people with AIDS. Through their voices, OUT & PROUD tells the story of the LGBT citizens who helped shape the face of a city.
