Gay Pride Parade draws around a million

Posted by wlpo on June 30, 2014

CHICAGO (AP) – Gov. Pat Quinn and about a million others attended the Gay Pride Parade in Chicago.

Quinn said he was proud to lobby for same-sex marriage and sign the law. It was the first Gay Pride Parade since gay marriage was legalized in Illinois.

The Democratic governor faces a re-election bid against GOP gubernatorial candidate Bruce Rauner who has said voters should have decided whether to allow gay marriage. Quinn says he doesn’t “need a referendum to tell me what the right thing to do is.”
