Hi there,

My name is Jake Wittich, and I'm a local LGBTQ+ news reporter based in Chicago.

I cover the city's LGBTQ+ community for Block Club Chicago, focusing on community engagement and uplifting transgender and BIPOC stories.

I spearheaded the launch of Proud City, Block Club's vertical for LGBTQ+ news, and write a semi-regular queer newsletter. You can sign up here.
