The 2017 People Issue

The 2017 People Issue

Four years ago, we met around a table, smacked our foreheads and decided it was high time we featured Clevelanders doing cool things in the region. We put together a long list of candidates. The only real qualifications were that we thought our subjects were interesting: They were young, old, black, brown, white, straight, gay, trans, cis, artistic, entrepreneurial, social, political and smart. They were weird and wonderful and enthusiastic about things that we sometimes were, and sometimes were not, also enthusiastic about. We had so much fun talking to our subjects that we did the same thing the next year, and the year after that, and the year after that.

This is our fifth annual People Issue, and once again we've been bowled over by the energy and diversity of the human beings with whom we share a city. In the following pages, you'll meet artists, activists and an architect; writers, teachers and chefs. You'll meet a rapper and a lawyer, a hardwood restoration specialist and a naturalist. You might meet someone you know — but you'll certainly meet 27 people who you'll want to know.

This is the Scene People Issue: Don't be shy.
