Happy Valentine’s Day from Equality Illinois.
We’re excited to be celebrating tonight at the 2015 Equality Illinois Gala at the Hilton Chicago Hotel. With the gala falling this year on Valentine’s Day, we highlight the significance that this first full year of marriage equality holds for LGBT Illinoisans.
Valentine’s Day used to be a day of dread for many LGBT people and their families, who often felt uncomfortable displaying their true feelings in public. On this Valentine’s Day, the Equality Illinois Gala will fill two hotel ballrooms and make an emphatic public statement that “Love is Love.”
