Saying Goodbye To 'Girlstown': Andersonville's Lesbian Population Shrinks

Longtime residents trace the influx of lesbian couples to one business: Women and Children First. The feminist bookstore moved from Halsted Street to 5233 N. Clark St. in the early 90s when Boystown became too expensive.

"There’s this hip quotient," said Hoffberg, President of Audience Logic, 5443 N. Broadway. "When I’m with old friends from growing up [in Winnetka], who remained up there, their favorite conversation is restaurants they’ve gone to in Andersonville. It’s hip to them."

Women and Children First founders Ann Christophersen and Linda Boubon opened their original store at 922 W. Armitage Ave. in 1979, where they set out to "promote the work of women writers and to create a place in which all women would find books reflecting their lives and interests."

    Saying Goodbye To 'Girlstown': Andersonville's Lesbian Population Shrinks
    ANDERSONVILLE - The neighborhood that once was a hub for Chicago's lesbian community - known to many as "Girlstown" - is now home to more married gay men than hitched gay women, data shows. For longtime Andersonville residents and business owners, this is not a surprise.

  • I once went to a family reunion of Swedes at my 'mormors'...it was at dusk, and the natural sunlight that had been flooding the room(s) was fading and no lights were yet turned on. All I could see from the living room into the dining room was the oldsters and blue, blue eyes crackling back. They were glistening. I'm loathe to use this overused word, but it was amazing. This from one of the brown-eyed kids.

    re- the Swedes were among the first Gay people on earth.

    That's because they are some of the best looking people in the world - blond hair, blue eyed, thin - "what's not to like!" -

    In my next life I'm coming back a Swede.

  • Wazzup not available

    My window treatments were bought years ago - custom - Classic Draperies - they did an excellent job of evaluating needs as well as aesthetics - because the housekeeper dusts them every week they are still in like new condition - the materials were first class - while initial cost was high - the quality meant the amortized cost was low. Give them a try and explain your situation. (773) 252-7742 -a remember dust destroys material so dust weekly.

  • Great, thanks so much everyone for your help! :)
