Event description
LANDMARK: The Legacy Project [un]Gala

About this Event

After years promoting LGBTQ contributions to World History and Culture, the Legacy Walk Rainbow Pylon Streetscape was officially designated the largest LGBTQ Historic Landmark on earth. A few short weeks later, the LGBTQ-Inclusive Curriculum Bill (HB246), co-written by the Legacy Project, became Illinois law. These two ground-breaking achievements have catapulted the Legacy Project – a small, volunteer-driven charity – into the pantheon of LGBTQ History itself!

SO IT’S TIME WE CELEBRATE!!

Mayor Lori E. Lightfoot & First Lady Amy Eshleman invite you to
