As part of our Windy City Times criminal justice series, we wanted to provide a look at the openly LGBT judges in the Chicago area. This region has come a long way since 1994, when Tom Chiola was elected as the first openly gay person to win any office in Illinois.

The Alliance of Illinois Judges is the professional networking organization founded by the LGBT Judges of the Circuit Court of Cook County. It is open to all Judges (gay and straight) throughout the State of Illinois. While most of the LGBT Judges reside in Cook County, there is an openly gay judge in Kane County. For more information about the Alliance go to http://theaij.com .

Below is an alphabetical listing of the openly LGBT judges in this area. Some work in the civil courts, others in the criminal system. Note, Eileen Brewer chose not to have her photo with this article.
