A celebration of Tracy Baim's 35th Anniversary in LGBTQ Media, hosted by Sharon Mylrea and a team of co-hosts, will raise funds for Windy City Times. The event will be Wednesday, May 22, 2019 at 6 p.m. at Sidetrack The Video Bar. A VIP reception begins at 5 p.m.
Chicago-based NPR journalist Cheryl Corley will interview Baim live during the event, and there will be 1980s LGBTQ media memorabilia on display.
Baim 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. Funds raised will go to funding LGBT journalists at Windy City Times.
