“With the Illinois bill’s passage today, the march towards equality is turning into a stampede,” stated James Esseks, Director of the LGBT Project of the ACLU.
“One year ago, there were six states with marriage equality and now with Illinois there are fifteen. Once this bill is signed into law, over thirty-seven percent of the American population will live in states with the freedom to marry for all loving and committed couples. All families deserve the protection and security that only marriage provides and our fight to extend those protections to families in the remaining 35 states will continue,” Esseks stated.

After the bill receives Quinn’s signature, same-sex couples can enjoy marriage equality starting in June.
