Victoria Noe

Author, FRIEND GRIEF AND MEN: DEFYING STEREOTYPES
Chicago, IL
Victoria Noe began her career in Chicago’s theatre community as a stage manager, director and administrator in addition to being a founding board member of the League of Chicago Theatres. In the late 80s she moved to fundraising in the AIDS and arts communities. But when a concussion ended her educational sales career, she decided to keep a promise to a dying friend to write a book. That book became a series - Friend Grief and Anger: When Your Friend Dies and No One Gives A Damn; Friend Grief and AIDS: Thirty Years of Burying Our Friends and Friend Grief and 9/11: The Forgotten Mourners; Friend Grief and the Military: Band of Friends; Friend Grief in the Workplace: More Than an Empty Cubicle and Friend Grief and Men: Defying Stereotypes. The first four are included in Library Journal’s Illinois and National SELF-e Collections. She’s currently working on Fag Hags, Divas and Moms: The Legacy of Straight Women in the AIDS Community, coming in 2017. Noe considers it a labor of love, to recognize the contributions of amazing women from around the world who stepped up to the challenge of fighting this devastating virus. Her articles have appeared on a variety of grief and writing blogs as well as Windy City Times, Chicago Tribune, A&U Magazine and Huffington Post. She also reviews books on BroadwayWorld.com. A native St. Louisan, Noe remains a lifelong Cardinals fan and will gladly take on any comers in musical theatre trivia.
