Chicago is well-known for producing both great journalists and stories the grab national attention.
Founded in 1991, the Chicago Chapter has grown from four members to become one of NLGJA's largest and most visible chapters. With members throughout Illinois, Wisconsin and parts of Indiana, the Chicago Chapter focuses on keeping members connected, providing fun social events and mentoring student journalists.
Our members know how to work hard and play hard, and they have a strong dedication to keeping the LGBT coverage of our local communities fair and balanced.
One of NLGJA's premiere chapters, we have hosted two NLGJA National Conventions in our fair city, including "Out in the Heartland," NLGJA's 15th Anniversary Celebration & Convention in 2005.
