Out & Equal Chicagoland was initially formed in 2005. Since it's inception, the Chicagoland affiliate has been working to reach out to Chicago’s corporations to promote greater local visibility of Out & Equal, and we are and continuing to be a banner for LGBTQ issues in workplaces across the Chicagoland. The showcase of the O&E Chicagoland affiliate's work is the production and organization of an annual series of events, held throughout the Chicagoland area, which promote LGBTQ workplace equality. These events, formerly known as Citywide Pride, now take place throughout the year.
