Queerbook is a compilation of Chicago based individuals. We are more than what we even know. We are the future parents and families, teachers & lawyers. We are artists, activists, designers and revolutionaries. We want to change the world... and we will. The project started summer 2015 as a catalog of "who's who" in the LGBTQIA community. It quickly shifted to being a platform for people to tell their story about what they do outside of nightlife in Chicago. I am so thankful to the contributors of this project. 2016 Had a total of 9 videos, and hundreds of photos. 

The exhibition will be on display from June 23-July 24 at The Observatory. The opening reception is on June 23rd during the pride kickoff.
