The other day, I was honored by the Windy City Times at a ceremony for their annual 30 Under 30 awards celebration. The 30 Under 30 honors “30 individuals under the age of 30 who have, in their young lives, already made significant contributions to Chicago’s LGBT community and beyond.”
I was recognized for my work as an entertainer, writer and fundraiser for local charities Howard Brown Health Center and 826CHI. I was humbled to share the stage with such young, talented individuals. From AIDS educators to lawyers to immigration rights activists, it was simply inspiring.
Thank you Windy City Times for recognizing me and the important contributions of Chicago’s gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgendered youth. Also, an extra thanks for recognizing just a few months before I became ineligible. The big 3-0 is coming up!
