| Filed under: Gay Gay GayLegal MattersInspiration

Even Lincoln Is Proud Of IL This Week
Illinois Rocks!

Gays and their supporters rejoiced in Illinois yesterday as Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich Pat Quinn signed legislation establishing civil unions, giving same-sex couples most of the state-level rights and responsibilities of marriage.

At the ceremony, openly gay state representative Greg Harris reminded the crowd “There is more work to be done. Things can get better.”

Lt. Gov. Sheila Simon added, “I hope that other states will join us and I hope the federal government will join us as well. Full equality is not too much to ask for.”

We agree! EQUALITY IS NOT TOO MUCH TO ASK FOR!!!!!!!!!!!!

However, this is a HUGE step forward. There is much reason for celebration in boys town! Congrats Illinois!!!!!!!

    This is stupid. I live in Chicago and they keep raising the damn taxes. Fix that shit first, then worry about other issues.

    but - separate but equal is never equal.

    we need equal marriage. nothing else is acceptable.

    yeah thats such good news! I live in the midwest, and there are just as many gay couples out here as anywhere but because its such a red area they are nervous to express themselves! I am so glad that now Iowa and Illionis are letting them do just that, equal rights for all!
