One year ago, many in our community feared that progress in our movement would slow down, but Equality Illinois is as vigilant as ever. Already this year we’ve made great strides towards full LGBT equality and equal treatment in Illinois – especially in the last 2 days. Let’s break them down:
- Legislation to protect our youth from harmful conversion therapy recieved bipartisan support in the House on Tuesday, and passed 68 to 43.
- A bill that would update hate crimes legislation to include transgender individuals sailed unanimously through the House in April and passed the Senate yesterday.
- A bill that would allow Illinoisans to designate their gender identity, expression, and pronouns in written funeral and burial instructions passed the House 79-34 with bipartisan support.
Right now, we need your support to complete action on these measures and much more.
