Such a proud moment for the state, and the country!
This morning, gay and lesbian couples were able to receive the state of Illinois' first civil union licenses for the first time ever.
Check out the video of the first couple in line in Cook County, Lakeesha Harris and Janean Watkins, having their application processed at the Daley Center in Chicago (above)!
Wonderful! We tear up a little seeing how happy they are!
Congratulations, you two!
This is a big step in the right direction - now we just need to continue making these moves FORWARD!
EQUAL RIGHTS FOR ALL!
