Chicago IRL: A Queer Chicago Collaboration of Culture & Class(lessness)

Catalog Number: 
Chicago IRL
Date: 
2012
Issue: 
3
Abstract: 
"Chicago IRL (In Real Life) is an arts and literary digest cataloging contemporary queer creative culture in Chicago. We hope not only to document existing queer talent but also to inspire new collaborations and explorations. Although much of our coordination uses the internet to connect us with contributors, we desire to encourage new interactions in real life as well. Chicago IRL is a zine made by and for the disenchanted, hopeful, and unemployed revolutionaries, muppets, and magicians to capture the spirit of a new dawn, whatever that means."
