Chicago Tribune reports:
U.S. Rep. Mike Quigley is being honored for his support of gay issues during his public service career. His first act in Congress was to co-sponsor the Hate Crimes Bill, and he's called for the repeal of the military's ban on gay service members. He was also a co-sponsor of the Employment Non-Discrimination Act. And he's urged President Barack Obama to include same-sex marriages in the 2010 Census. The hall of fame recognizes achievements by both members of Chicago's gay communities and their allies. The hall of fame induction ceremony is scheduled for Nov. 12 at the Chicago Cultural Center.
