In conjunction with National Coming Out Day on October 11, 2012, The Legacy Walk—the world’s first exhibit of its kind—was dedicated in Chicago as an outdoor “walking museum” celebrating the achievements and contributions of LGBT people to world history and culture.

Kevin Osten, Psy.D., Director of the Adler School LGBTQ Mental Health and Inclusion Center, was among the Adler School leaders joining local, state, and national officials and representatives at the dedication. The Adler School provided support for one of the walk’s inaugural plaques, in honor of Barbara Gittings, who successfully lobbied to overturn classification of homosexuality as a mental illness in the 70s.
