Congressman Celebrates LGBT Families

June 9, 2010

Rep. Mike Quigley

U.S. Rep. Mike Quigley, R-Chicago, yesterday attended a party in Chicago with families that have same-sex parents. Quigley has been an longtime advocate of lgbt rights.

The event – designed to celebrate these families and dispel stereotypes – was arranged in response to inflammatory comments from former presidential candidate and Fox News commentator Mike Huckabee, who recently spoke out against same-sex marriage and the right of same-sex parents to adopt children. Party organizers invited Huckabee, who did not attend. WBBM-TV offered a report.
