Lt. Gov. Simon to Wed Same-Sex Couple on State Capitol Steps


It’s not something you see every day… and perhaps not ever before today.

 

This afternoon, two men will be married on the steps of the Illinois Capitol, in a ceremony officiated by the lieutenant governor.

 

Sheila Simon was certified online to conduct the wedding services for Eric Homa and James Wyatt. The men are friends and political supporters of Simon.

 

They’ve been a couple of 20 years, but couldn’t wed until same-sex marriage became legal in Illinois this summer.
