The Observant Queer comments mainly on the blogger's observations of "life in the big city," particularly Chicago, and frequently connected to the experience of GLBT people therein.  However, like the OQ himself, the blog roams widely in search of what's of interest and what's worth talking about.  Well aware that there's something a bit arrogant (dare he say self-indulgent?) about imagining others may want to read what he writes, the OQ puts it out there nevertheless.  Provocative, frequently.  Poignant, sometimes.  Relevant, the reader will decide.  Join the conversation!
