OUT at CHM | Refashioning Gender Identities

Now in its fifteenth year, the Museum’s popular and provocative series delves into the storied history of Chicago’s LGBTQ communities. This season, join us as we explore the connections between activism of the past and today and how calls to action propel cultural disruption.

Save the Date-Refashioning Gender Identities

How do we disrupt what we perceive as identity? Through the universality of fashion, discover how clothing is used to shape and redefine gender identities. Take in an array of head-turning designs that flip the script on gender norms. Stay for a panel discussion that contextualizes today’s queer fashion within the history of fashion and Chicago’s queer past.

Ticket Sales: TBA 

Major support for Out at CHM comes from the Exelon Corporation with additional support from Robert Kohl and Clark Pellett and the Richard L. Ohlhausen Education Fund.
