Windy City Queercast
WCQ621 Illinois Cook County Clerk David Orr and the Same Sex Marriage Law One Year Later

Host: Amy Matheny

Amy is excited to dish with Illinois Cook County Clerk David Orr on gays and lesbians getting married. It's been one year since the law allowed Cook County clerks to issue marriage licenses to same sex partners.

Guest: Illinois Cook County Clerk David Orr joins Amy on the Queercast for the first time! David shares stories of his early public service, the lawsuit that allowed same sex couples to get married in Cook County and then in Illinois. David also explains what the law has done for thousands of gays and lesbians wanting to marry, and also those who entered into Civil Unions, one year after its passage. For more information visit www.cookcountyclerk.com

Music Featured on This Queercast: Frank Sinatra - "Love and Marriage" and Bette Midler - "Going to the Chapel of Love"
