Explore the Legacy Walk

Chicago’s Legacy Walk is a dynamic outdoor LGBTQ history exhibit along the half mile of the North Halsted Street Corridor, between Belmont Avenue and Grace Street. Ten pairs of decorative steel “Rainbow Pylons” define the nexus of Chicago’s LGBTQ community. Affixed to the pylons are a series of bronze biographical memorial markers commemorating the life and work of notable LGBTQ individuals whose achievements have helped shape the world – but whose contributions, sexual orientation, or gender identity have been overlooked, minimized, or redacted entirely from most historic texts.
