Dignity/Chicago—the advocacy organization for LGBTQI Catholics and their allies—will celebrate its 45th anniversary on Saturday, May 20, with a dinner at Francesca's on Taylor, 1400 W. Taylor St.

DignityUSA Executive Director Marianne Duddy-Burke will be the guest speaker and the James A. Bussen Award ( presented to individuals or organizations that promote justice and equality on behalf of LGBTQI individuals ) will be presented to Lambda Legal. Duddy-Burke will speak on "Dignity at the Crossroads," with an emphasis on reaching into new communities and a focus on the organization's work in Chicago.

The Anniversary Dinner will be followed on Sunday, May 21, by a celebration Mass in Dignity/Chicago's host church at 3338 N. Broadway ( Broadway United Methodist Church ). Dignity cannot meet in a Catholic space because of its public stance in opposition to Roman Catholic Church teachings on homosexuality and women's ordination.

Regarding the May 20 event, a VIP reception will be held at 5:30-6:30 p.m., with a general reception and the dinner at 6:30-9 p.m. Dinner tickets are $40 and $75 and can be purchased by visiting Dignity-chicago.com or by mailing a check to Dignity/Chicago, 3023 N Clark St., Box 237, Chicago, IL 60657-5200. For more information, call 312-458-9438 or email DignityChicago@gmail.com .
