Gay hall of fame holds 20th anniversary ceremony

CHICAGO (AP) — Chicago's Gay and Lesbian Hall of Fame is set to induct 11 individuals and four organizations at its 20th anniversary induction ceremony.

The ceremony is scheduled for Nov. 9 at the Chicago History Museum.

The individuals honored this year include a pioneer in early-20th-century popular music, a promoter of gay and transgender sports teams and an expert on promoting the health of gay youth.

The Good Shepherd Parish Metropolitan Community Church is one of the organizations to be honored. The Night Ministry, a social service organization that provides emergency housing for homeless youth, is being honored as a friend of the community.

City officials say the hall of fame recognizes individuals and organizations for their contributions to Chicago's gay communities. It also recognizes efforts to combat homophobia.
