CHICAGO  — Murals celebrating LGBTQ life will be coming to Chicago, including to the Magnificent Mile shopping district in the coming days.

The work by Chicago artist Sam Kirk was on display in New York City during WorldPride last year, which marked the 50th anniversary of the 1969 Stonewall riots that helped spark the modern gay rights movement.

The first Chicago installation will take place Wednesday with others following through July.

The murals depict LGBTQ people of many races in bright multicolored panels.
