What we're about

Originally started in 2014, the Chicago's West Suburbs LGBTQ+ Connection began with the Out! Bowling League. We have since expanded to include many more activities such as brunches, coffeehouse socials, movies, and others, and are open to your suggestions for anything else. Although we focus primarily on DuPage and Kane counties (Naperville and Aurora), everyone is welcome to participate in our events. If you have new ideas or suggestions, or would like to become part of the organizer team, please let us know.
