Biographical Note

Jerrold “Jerry” Ernest Cohen (b. February 3, 1943, d. November 26, 1991) was a photographer and activist who helped found over a dozen organizations and held several leadership positions in Chicago’s LGBTQ community from the late 1960s through the early 1990s. Cohen was born on February 3, 1943, in Chicago, Illinois, to Lillian and Albert A. Cohen. He and his brother David attended South Shore High School in Chicago.

In 1969, at age 26, Cohen began attending University of Chicago gay liberation meetings. He helped grow the group into Chicago Gay Liberation, staffed the city’s first gay hotline, and marched in Chicago’s first Gay Pride March in 1970. Cohen cofounded the Chicago Gay Alliance in 1971, opening his home as Chicago’s first Gay Community Center and serving as the alliance’s treasurer. The same year, he helped organize the city’s first Gay Pride Week.

Cohen held several professional and volunteer business and accounting positions, including Systems Manager for the American Library Association. An accomplished photographer, he contributed work to the Chicago Gay Alliance Newsletter, the Chicago Gay Crusader, GayLife, BlueBoy, Man's Country, and the International Mr. Leather competitions. Cohen established his own studio, A Thousand Words, Unlimited, documenting LGBTQ life in the city through the late 1980s.

Through the 1970s and 1980s Cohen served in a variety of volunteer positions. He helped found the Windy City Gay Chorus, acting as its first Business Manager and organizing the first meeting of the Gay/Lesbian Choral Association. Cohen cofounded the Chi-Town Squares, a gay square dancing group, with Ron Goldman in 1987. He also held the office of Treasurer for Toddlin’ Town Performing Arts, an umbrella group for the Windy City Gay Chorus, Chicago Gay Pride Band, and the Artemis Singers.

During the AIDS epidemic, Cohen volunteered with the Howard Brown Memorial Clinic. After the death of his then partner, Cohen was instrumental in forming the Chicago chapter of the NAMES Project, bringing the AIDS Memorial Quilt to Chicago for the first time. Diagnosed as HIV-positive in 1984, Cohen participated in several investigative treatments and medical studies and cofounded the Test Positive Aware Network for couples living HIV/AIDS with his partner Alan Amberg.

Jerry Cohen died of complications of HIV infection on November 26, 1991. He was inducted into the Chicago LGBT Hall of Fame in 1993.

Scope Note

The Jerry Cohen Photograph Collection is organized into three series: Series I: Personal; Series II: Professional; and Series III: Oversize. The collection contains negatives, contact sheets, photographic prints, slides, handwritten notes, correspondence, and newspaper clippings. Materials date between 1975 and 1992, with the bulk of the material dating between 1975 and 1987.

Series I, Personal, contains photographs and correspondence related to Cohen’s family, friends, vacations, and photography classes, arranged alphabetically by subject. Of special interest are photographic prints from the 1987 March on Washington for Lesbian and Gay Rights, located in Box 3, Folder 8. The folder labels in this series include Cohen’s original labels, transcribed verbatim when present. Cohen’s numbering system consisted of his initials followed by the month, day, and year the photographs were taken and a letter designation beginning with “A” if multiple rolls of film were included.

Series II, Professional, consists of Cohen’s paid and volunteer photography and associated papers, arranged alphabetically by subject. Subjects include portrait and advertisement commissions; photographs taken for LGBTQ publications like GayLife and BlueBoy; and establishments and events like Chicago bar and bathhouse Man's Country, the International Mr. Leather competition, Chicago Gay Pride Week, protests against Anita Bryant, and the NAMES Project AIDS Memorial Quilt. This series contains several folders of erotic photography. The folder labels in this series include Cohen’s original labels, transcribed verbatim when present. Cohen’s numbering system consisted of his initials followed by the month, day, and year the photographs were taken and a letter designation beginning with “A” if multiple rolls of film were included.

Series III, Oversize, contains a variety of oversize items. Of particular note are a group of 11 matted black and white portraits circa the early 1970s. This series also contains two folders of original artwork created for Cohen by friends, including one celebrating his love of penguins.
