Why Marriage Matters

While I'm really excited that civil unions will become legal in Illinois on June 1st, I'm still left with a bit of sadness. It smacks of "separate but equal" which, of course, isn't equal at all.

True marriage equality is essential. I long for the day that gay marriage is legal all across the country. Until then, let's celebrate this victory in Illinois, while still working towards complete equality everywhere.
