WCQ513 Jim Bennett and the Illinois Marriage Equality Vote 2013-03-17
Host: Amy Matheny
Amy can't conceive of going to a Parade in just a T-Shirt and no coats during Mid-March in Chicago. She went to see a couple of awesome shows this week and highly recommend them. AND one of the biggest stories in Illinois right now is the upcoming FULL Marriage Equality vote. BIG SHOW today!
Guest: Jim Bennett, friend of the Queercast and the Midwest Director of Lambda Legal, joins Amy to discuss the Illinois Marriage Equality vote. What does he think the chances are for its passage and what we can do to help? Jim shares some cases including Iowa, Republican Senator Portman, Prop 8, the 2012 election GLBT ballot initiatives and if the tides have turned nationwide toward marriage equality. Jim also discusses the upcoming arguments the US Supreme Court will be hearing March 25th and 26th. For more information visit lambdalegal.com/ilove and www.eqil.org/ to get involved!
