Chicago House—which provides housing and support for those living with HIV/AIDS—has announced its 8th Speaker Series, with Wanda Sykes and Adam Rippon as headliners, on Friday, Sept. 14, in the Grand Ballroom of the Hilton Chicago, 720 S. Michigan Ave., 11 a.m.-2 p.m.

Local NBC reporter Chris Hush will emcee the event.

Sykes, an out stand-up comedian and actress, received an Emmy nomination for her first HBO comedy special, Wanda Sykes; Sick and Tired. Since, she has received numerous awards and nominations, including a 2010 GLAAD award and a 2017 Primetime Emmy nod for her work on the ABC show Black-ish.

Before he even stepped on the ice at the 2018 Winter Olympics, figure skater Adam Rippon made history as the first openly gay U.S. male athlete to qualify for the Winter Games. He eventually earned the bronze medal as part of the figure-skating team event, becoming the the first openly gay athlete to medal at the Winter Olympics.

The event's hosts include co-chairs Nabeela Rasheed, intellectual property section head at AbbVie; and Chicago House Board Chair, Ray J. Koenig III, a Clark Hill Executive Committee and the managing member of the law firm's Chicago office as well as a member in Clark Hill's Litigation and Personal Legal Services practice groups.

See ChicagoHouse.org for tickets and more information.
