The Qu is so proud of the queer community in Chicago! It is AMAZING how loud our voices are in this city. Tony sat down with Joe Varisco and Topher McCulloch with Chicago IRL to discuss their third issue and their release party this Saturday at Northern Light, hosted at Parlour on Clark!
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.
