Research Media Coverage


I was organizing the newspaper articles I clipped during my fieldwork and came across one of my study of Boystown. It was published in the now defunct Chicago Free Press on March 4, 2010. The cover page read, "Weathering the Storm: How GLBT non-profits are coping with new economic realities," a story on the economic recession's effect on local non-profits. It was also ironically next to a story about a hate crime attack on the Red Line, when Daniel Hauff defended "gay youth" on the train. Even a story about my study is situated on the pages of political economy and crime. Perhaps this justifies where my argument has landed 7 years later.
