History comes to Halsted

The Art Deco, rainbow-ringed pillars lining the streets of Boystown since 1998 will shine a little brighter next month with the long-awaited addition of bronze plaques honoring gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender (GLBT) trailblazers who have had a significant impact on world history and culture.

The Legacy Walk—a veritable outdoor museum located on one-half mile of North Halsted Street in Lakeview—will feature 18 plaques bearing a laser-cast image of an inductee along with a 300-word biographical paragraph.
