ABOUT THIS DIRECTORY
 

This Directory provides links to LGBTQ owned and friendly business and services.  As you browse through the directory remember to support business that respect you and your family.

SHOP QUEER!

Opponents of LGBTQ equality believe they are morally superior to gay and lesbian families and our supporters.  And they have the backing of the Bush administration whose campaign was financed by large corporations like Wal-Mart (see the Boycott page for a complete list of companies who supported Bush).
Instead of spending money at these and other straight-owned enterprises, why not spend your hard-earned dollars supporting businesses that support you and your family?
Use this directory and our classifieds to purchase products or services from queer owned or queer friendly merchants.  And if you have something to sell or trade, why not list it here its free! 
Together we have the power to make a difference!

Illinois In The News

Civil Unions And Religious Liberty
Geoffrey R. Stone
04/27/09. There has been a transformation in our thinking on this issue over the past half-century. What would once have been regarded as nothing short of weird now seems perfectly sensible.
 
Civil Unions Bill Moves To Illinois House Floor
Andrea Zelinski
03/06/09. Supporters of gay marriage say 2009 could be the year Illinois seriously considers establishing civil unions, but opponents say the pendulum of public support is swinging the other way.
 
Mormons Mobilize To Deprive Gays Of More Rights
Tanya Ganeva
03/05/09. An e-mail sent to LDS followers calls on them to block civil unions legislation in Illinois.
 
Ridiculously Lame Excuse No. 5,234 Given By Democrats For Why Gays Must Wait For Basic Legal Equality
Chris Crane
12/15/08. A civil unions bill pending for almost two years gets tanked, and we're to believe it's not because the Democrats are shafting us by prioritizing pretty much everything over our civil rights. Oh no. It's because on the last week of the (year-round!) legislative session, the governor got arrested.
 
Illinois Governor Blagojevich's Shenanigans Stalls Civil Unions
Queerty
12/12/08. As if you need another reason to hate Gov. Rod Blagojevich. The Illinois Governor accused of trying to sell Obama's Senate seat to the highest bidder (among a host of other corruption charges) has left the Illinois legislature in disarray, effectively destroying any hope of the state passing the Illinois Religious Freedom and Civil Unions Act.
 
Illinois Civil Union Bill Likely Dead
James Janega
12/10/08. Legislation to allow civil unions for same-sex couples in Illinois appears to have little chance of coming to a vote as the state grapples with the scandal that has enveloped Illinois over Gov. Blagojevich.
