The first federally approved monument honoring lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) veterans was dedicated Memorial Day, Monday, May 25 at the Abraham Lincoln National Cemetery in Elwood, Illinois.
Patrick Smith, Mr. Los Angeles Leather 2015, was named International Mr. Leather 2015 at the 37th annual IML Competition in Chicago Sunday, May 24.
It's that time of year again! Although Memorial Day itself promises to chase away the recent chill settling around Chicago, with temperatures reaching into the high 70s, the weather prediction for this weekend is rain. This, however, won't stop the thousands upon thousands of LGBT people, bears, fetishests, kinksters, and admirers who flock to the city for the trifecta of events: the Grabby Awards, Bear Pride, and International Mister Leather.
