Statement From Mayor Rahm Emanuel On The House Passage Of SB10

Mayor's Press Office    312.744.3334

“Today is a critical moment in history for Illinois and for the entire LGBT movement. Finally, gays and lesbians across our state are guaranteed the fundamental right to marry, and countless couples with children will be acknowledged for what they are under the law – families just like everyone else. I commend State Representative Greg Harris for his steadfast leadership in this effort and look forward to the day where every American can enjoy the same freedom to marry the person they love, and when our country can provide equal rights to every man or woman – gay or straight.”
