WHAT IS CAMP?

Founded on May 31st, 2017, the Chicagoland Alliance of Museums with Pride is an alliance of friendly museum staff focused on actively engaging the LGBTQ community.

We Believe : Chicagoland’s museums are enriched when staff + visitors of all gender expressions, sexual orientations and family configurations are intentionally welcomed and included.

Our Mission: Is to inspire, inform and equip Chicagoland’s museum professionals to make their museum environments more welcoming and inclusive for LGBTQ staff and visitors.

We Seek: To support the mission and activities of CAMPout
