Windy City Times has been proud to serve the Chicago-area LGBT community since 1985. We have always been a free publication, and our online website has always been free.

We remain committed to providing all forms of free media outlets for LGBT news, entertainment, and more. Our work includes not just Windy City Times and our website, but also Nightspots, Windy City Queercast, events, video and more.

Some websites, including The New York Times, are starting to charge for parts of their online content. There are other companies trying to charge for online news content, and no perfect revenue model exists. We never want to put any of our content behind paywalls.

In order to stay free, we could use your support. As we move into our second 25 years of service, you can pledge support by contributing funds (your contributions are not tax deductible). These additional resources will assist us in keeping our website free, and also in putting additional resources into Windy City Media Group.

Please, if you are able, we welcome your support.

Thank you for being part of our WCMG team.
