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, 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 History itself!

Be on hand when we honor the contributions of four powerhouse activists whose work from Day One has ensured the success of the Legacy Project:
- LORI F. CANNON – Legacy Advocate Award
- PAUL L. HIGHFIELD – Legacy Philanthropist Award
- OWEN J. KEEHNEN – Legacy Educator Award
- CARRIE E. MAXWELL – Legacy Volunteer Award
These four individuals’ selfless commitment embodies the work of the Legacy Project to illuminate and affirm the lives of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer people; to honor LGBTQ experiences and accomplishments; to collect and preserve their contributions to world history and culture; to educate and inspire the public and young people; and to assure an inclusive and equitable future.
