Out & Proud in Chicago


Out & Proud in Chicago Stories

When the documentary "Out & Proud In Chicago" premiered, WTTW broadcast video shorts featuring viewers own coming out stories. These compelling featurettes ran throughout the month of June on Channel 11. The people interviewed were not in the documentary "Out & Proud In Chicago." They are PBS viewers who volunteered to share their difficult journeys with our audience as "interstitials" that aired between WTTW programs.
