Celebration of Baim's 35 years in LGBTQ press benefits the work of Windy City Times Video below 2019-05-24
A celebration of Tracy Baim's 35 years in LGBTQ press was held May 22 at Sidetrack. She was co-founder of Windy City Times and is now the publisher of the Chicago Reader.
The benefit, hosted by Sharon Mylrea and a team of co-hosts, also raised funds for Windy City Times.
Tracy started her work as a journalist in May of 1984 at GayLife newspaper, going on to co-found Windy City Times in 1985. In this changing media landscape, it's important to support community media.
On display were covers of 1980s LGBTQ newspapers, plus more than 900 archival photos.
At the MORE PHOTOS button on this page are photos by Hal Baim from the party and, starting below those, hundreds of archival photos by Tracy Baim, Hal Baim, Lisa Howe-Ebright, MJ Murphy and dozens of Windy City Times/GayLife/Outlines/Blacklines/En La Vida and Nightlines/Nightspots photographers, part of an archival slideshow on display during the party.
