CHICAGO (CBS) — There’s a movement to bar Illinois politicians from the Pride Parade later this month.
In the beginning, there was Jane Byrne.
And then more and more politicians joined the Gay Pride Parade in Chicago. It was a place to be seen and curry favor among a well-heeled community.
But with the gay marriage bill mired in Springfield quicksand, some in the gay community – and their supporters – have signed on to an online petition on change.org that wants to ban Illinois politicians from the parade June 30.
