Gay travelers heading to Chicago or other parts of Illinois will now find it easier to locate queer-friendly accommodations and events: The state has just launched a new LGBT channel on the official Visit Illinois website.
Gov. Pat Quinn announced the launch of “Pride Illinois” on Saturday, explaining that it will allow Illinois to meet the needs of LGBT travelers and support the state’s growing tourism industry. “Pride Illinois” offers detailed info on popular queer Windy City events like Chicago Pride, North Halsted Market Days, Pride Day at Wrigley Field and the Reeling Film Festival.
In January, Quinn signed legislation granting same-sex couples the same legal rights as married heterosexual couples.Last week, openly gay state legislators Greg Harris, Deb Mell and Kelly Cassidy announced efforts to introduce a formal marriage-equality bill.
