SHARE Gay marriage bill signing

Today Governor Pat Quinn is currently at the UIC Forum on Chicago’s near West Side with lawmakers and leaders in the LGBT community signing the bill into the law. Our own Al Keefe is at the signing. What happens now? Well, the law won’t go into effect for a couple months. But law or no law, opponents of gay marriage are still standing strong, especially in the African-American community.
