Rest In Power, Elise Malary

By March 21, 2022Events
Dear LGBTCC-IL Members and Friends,
 
It is with profound sadness that over the weekend, we learned of Elise Malary’s passing.
 
Many of us met Elise through our work for the LGBTQ+ community. A fierce advocate in particular for transgender, GNC, GNB and the black community, Elise was a true role model for LGBTQ+ advocacy in Chicago and beyond.
 
A testament to the number of lives she touched was the community coming together for a vigil over the weekend in Andersonville. Additionally, a chalk wall is available to share messages about Elise outside of Women & Children First bookstore to honor her memory.
 
Our thoughts are with Elise’s family, friends, connections and colleagues during this difficult time.
 
Rest in Power.
 
In solidarity,
the LGBT Chamber of Commerce – Illinois
