Time Out says

Beginning in 2012, North Halsted Street became the world’s first LGBTQ outdoor museum as the Legacy Project began installing a collection of placards on the street’s rainbow-colored pylons (erected in 1998 by then Mayor Richard M. Daley), honoring heroes like Oscar Wilde, Harvey Milk, Antonia Pantoja, Frida Kahlo, Alvin Ailey. New placards are rotated in every year on National Coming Out Day, October 11; there are plans to open a Legacy Project Visitors Center in 2017, which would display those placards retired from the Legacy Walk.
