Chicago Gay HOF inducts athletes

The Chicago Gay Hall of Fame is inducting 15 new members this year, including two for their work in the Chicago gay sports world:

Bob Gammie, 84, an active organizer and fundraiser since 1949, for his many years of community service, including being one of the first organizers of gay activities in non-bar settings, in particular the volleyball games in Lincoln Park that grew into the Lincoln Park Lagooners, which continues to flourish.

Paul G. Oostenbrug (above), 60, runner and community volunteer, for his long and dedicated service to Team Chicago, which takes LGBT Chicagoans to the Gay Games, and for his involvement on the boards of the Federation of Gay Games and Chicago House, a local AIDS service agency.

Congratulations to them and all of the inductees!
