Getting Here

The Legacy Wall is a one-of-a-kind, digitally-interactive, traveling exhibit that features mini-biographies of LGBTQ people throughout history, from virtually every walk of life, who have contributed in over 20 distinct fields. 

This positive and inspiring exhibit tells the stories behind such figures as Social Justice pioneer Jane Addams; Civil Rights organizer Bayard Rustin; British mathematician Alan Turing; U.S. Congresswoman Barbara Jordan; Astronaut Sally Ride; Renaissance artist and inventor Leonardo da Vinci; Transgender icons Sylvia Rivera and Marsha P. Johnson; Mexican Artist Frida Kahlo; and Fr. Mychal Judge (the “Saint of 9/11”). 

There are more over 125 digitally interactive mini-biographies in all. Learn more here: https://legacyprojectchicago.org/legacy-wall.
