  Contributor Biography:  Owen Keehnen 
 

Owen Keehnen is a writer, archivist, and historian. He was recently inducted into the Chicago Gay and Lesbian Hall of fame. Conductor of more than 200 interviews with authors, activists, and artists, Keehnen has worked tirelessly to record the experience of glbtq people over three decades. Almost 40 of his interviews may be found in glbtq.com's Special Features. They include informative conversations with authors as diverse as Dorothy Allison, Quentin Crisp, Emma Donoghue, Jaime Manrique, and Sapphire (Ramona Lofton).

A compilation of more than 100 of his interviews is the basis of his book We're Here, We're Queer: The Gay '90s and Beyond (2011). He has contributed to several books about Chicago glbtq history. With Tracy Baim, he is co-author of two extensive biographies of Chicago gay legends, Leatherman: The Legend of Chuck Renslow (2011) and Jim Flint: The Boy From Peoria (2011).
