Chicago Mayor Wants Gay Marriage For Illinois

Written by 

Richard-Daley

 

 

A few days ago Illinois passed a law to allow civil unions for same-sex couples but it is not enough for the mayor of Chicago.

Chicago mayor, Richard Daley (pictured), wants marriage equality's law comes "faster".

“Finally, they realized they should have the same rights under state law. But eventually, [gay] marriage will take place. It has to. ... We have to move faster,” he said according to the Chicago Sun-Timesaccording to the Chicago Sun-Times.

Daley is a big supporter for gay and lesbian rights. I mean there is a rooftop garden who wear his name at the Gay and Lesbian Center of Chicago! Daley gives it $5.4 Millions, then he push to bring domestic partner benefits for civil employees and it is also him who urged Gov. Pat Quinn to sign the civil unions law "as quickly as possible".

“These are great citizens. They’re a tremendous resource for us in our great city. I’m very proud of the relationship that I had with them over many years. And it’s really important for us to move forward. These are people [who] have families. These are people [who] work in every sector of our society. They should not be discriminated against in any way whatsoever,” he said.

Unfortunately, Daley announced this year he would not seek reelection in 2011 (mayor from 1989).
