Gay Chicago Gay Illinois News

The State of Illinois is adding a section for gay travelers to its tourism web site.

Gov. Pat Quinn announced the launch of “Pride Illinois” on Saturday at a Gala  for  EqIl.

The section will list gay-owned or gay-friendly accommodations, events and travel destinations, among other things.

It’s unclear how concise this page will be – or if only members who pay can promote their business on the page.

The governor signed legislation in January 2011 granting same-sex couples SIMILAR  legal rights as married couples. Illinois is the sixth state to allow civil unions.

Last week a bill was introduced for Gay Marriage in Illinois.

So Gay Marriage could be coming to Illinois soon!
