Gas leak closes streets in downtown Homewood on Friday

Chuck Bright and Andre Latia have lived in Flossmoor since 1998. Following last week’s story on the LGBTQ community in Homewood and Flossmoor, they contacted the Chronicle about what they saw as a lack of representation of gay men in the story. We offered them the opportunity to tell their story and that we would consider it for the Chronicle this weekend, which includes the annual Pride Parade in Chicago. Chuck provided these answers to our questions.
