What Same-Sex Marriage Would Mean For Illinois Families

Photo via WCHI. In this episode of the Barber Shop Show, we get down to what same-sex marriage really means for families, especially families with kids. Joining us at the shop is Jim Bennett, Midwest Regional Director of Llambda Legal, Ray Koenig III, an attorney who specializes in estate planning for lesbian and gay folks, and Vernita. Vernita is in a civil union with Pat. Vernita and Pat recently had an upsetting experience getting care at a hospital during a medical emergency. The consensus around the table is: it never would have happened if Vernita and Pat's relationship had the legal recognition that married people do. Hosted by Richard Steele. Produced by Ayana Conteras. Directed and engineered at Carter's by Sarah Lu. Engineered in Studio 11 by Collin Ashmeade-Bobbit.
