It wasn’t until five years ago when I actually moved to Chicago that I came to appreciate its diverse, albeit segregated, culture.

Many large, queer (read: non-predominantly gay male) shindigs occur monthly or randomly, so for the low down on what’s about to go down, join the Chicagostraddlers, follow Roxx Promotions, or stalk Glitter Guts Photobooth.

Here is a non-exhaustive (though compiling this, I am quite exhausted), listing of the lady places and spaces: Wild Thursdays (Victor Hotel, 311 N.

Sangamon St.) A weekly 18 LGBTQ dance party that serves alcohol (if you’re 21 )! Clark St.) Located in Lesbianland (Andersonville), T’s is a good choice on pretty much any night.
