Join Out Alumni in Chicago members for the upcoming installment of the Out at CHM series at the Chicago History Museum: “Sexicon: Language and Identity”

The words we use to identify ourselves can be powerful and fun but they can also stereotype or label us. Within the LGBT community, the words are as diverse as the people they represent. Many words have strong historic roots, some have been re-claimed, and new ones are created every day. Individuals of diverse backgrounds including Chuck Renslow, Tommy Walton, Christina Kharl, Emilia Chico, and Kim Hunt, will take the stage and provide a personal insight into the word that defines an aspect of who they are. This lively evening includes audience participation and is led by scholar, Erica Meiners.

Thanks to Yale GALA’s Mike Rosanova and Eric Rogers of the UChicago LGBT Alumni for planning this event. All are welcome to attend! For more information, visit
