The Legacy Project
After years promoting LGBTQ contributions to world history and culture, the Legacy Walk Rainbow Pylon Streetscape was officially designated the largest LGBTQ Historic Landmark on Earth. A few short weeks later, the LGBTQ-Inclusive Curriculum Bill (HB246), co-written by the Legacy Project, became Illinois law.
These two groundbreaking achievements have catapulted the Legacy Project – a small, volunteer-driven charity – into the pantheon of LGBTQ Historic achievements…IT’S TIME TO CELEBRATE!!
