Plan your next getaway to LGBT-friendly Illinois, where you’ll find lots of exciting
things to see and do all around the state. In Chicago (one of the top-rated LGBT
destinations in America), marvel at amazing architecture, spend the day wandering
through must-see museums, shop the Magnificent Mile, dance the night away at a club, see a Broadway play, and dine in some of the country’s best restaurants.
Beyond Chicago, sip your way along a rustic wine
trail, cruise historic Route 66, go antiquing in charming little villages, cozy
up to a country bed and breakfast, hike or bike through stunning state parks, and
explore fascinating historic sites.
Escape from it all, or to it all, in Illinois.
Illinois is the sixth state to allow civil unions, providing same-sex couples with
the same state-level rights as married couples. Passing the Illinois Religious Freedom
Protection and Civil Unions Act into law was an important priority for Governor
Pat Quinn. Since June 1, 2011, civil union licenses have been available at any County
Clerk’s office in Illinois.
Join in a pride parade or catch one of the many gay-friendly events around the state
that are uniquely Illinois.
