Chicago's Woman Made Gallery (WMG)—a feminist contemporary art gallery now in its 28th year—announced the appointment of a new executive director.

Gaylon B. Alcaraz is succeeding Deb Flagel, who served WMG from February 2017 to June 2019.

Alcaraz has a long history in Chicago as an activist, organizer and champion of human rights. As the past Executive Director of the Chicago Abortion Fund, she worked within the reproductive justice/rights/health movement to advocate for low-income women seeking to control their reproductive rights. Among her many social-justice accomplishments is her service as a founding board member of Affinity Community Services, a social justice organization that advocates for the rights of Black lesbian and bisexual women in the Chicagoland area.

In 2013, Gaylon was inducted into the Chicago LGBT Hall of Fame—the only such organization in the country. She has also been involved in politics, having run for the Cook County Board of Commissioners' 4th District post in 2018.

Born and raised in Chicago, Alcaraz was awarded her BA and MA degrees from DePaul University. She is currently a PhD candidate in community psychology at National Louis University.
