    Marriage Equality in Illinois

    in Legal

    Through landmark legislation that passed in Springfield, IL last November, Same Sex Marriage has come in effect as of June 1, 2014. With this new legislation comes many questions and even more gray areas that have yet to be discussed or tested by the court and employers.  Questions such as: 

    What benefits are there for same sex couples?  

    How may business be affected by marriage equality? 

    Now that there is marriage equality, how will these couples be impacted in the courtroom in case of a dissolution of their own?


    To learn more about these questions and more, tune in to this podcast with Family Law attorney, Jenet Pequeno of Lavelle Law, Ltd.

    LH #203: Marriage Equality & Political Mishaps

    in LGBT

    On Sunday 25 January 2015 Corwin and Phil talked marriage equality and political mishaps. Particularly the marriage equality case in Nebraska. As of the time this show went live it looked like the judge scheduled to hear the case had postponed the hearing pending the ruling from SCOTUS on similar cases before them this session. Phil has since learned that it was merely a postponement of a hearing to allow same sex marriage in Nebraska pending his final decision. That hearing has been rescheduled and Corwin and Phil will be talking more about that on 1 February.

    Lavender Hill airs live every Sunday morning at 11am Central. Approaching four years on the air, Lavender Hill is Nebraska's only LGBTQIAA news and talk program on community radio. Thanks to the continued support of KZUM and listeners, Lavender Hill will be celebrating the four year anniversary the same time that KZUM celebrates 37 years on the airwaves!

    Liberty Unfiltered: Marriage Equality & Robert Sarvis

    in Politics

    From out of the cesspool of partisan politicians, sycophants, and cronies, where the voices on the right and left do nothing more than parrot their respective talking points, one voice stands apart, crawling from the underbelly of the filth, standing up against the cancer of social conservatism and the overbearing nature of fiscal liberalism. That voice belongs to Steve Long, bringing his libertarian, and often sporadic, perspective on everything from politics and current events to pop culture.


    Tonight, Steve will be talking about the recent SCOTUS ruling that essentially made bans on same sex marriage unconstitutional. He will also be speaking with Robert Sarvis, former Libertarian candidate for Governor of Virginia and current Libertarian candidate for U.S. Senate from that state.

    Lavender Hill #189: Marriage Equality Surrounds Us

    in LGBT

    In the 189th edition of Lavender Hill, Corwin and Phil start off by talking about local to Lincoln news, including an update on the misunderstood Trans Issues at Lincoln Public Schools. From there they move into the increasing reality that marriage equality is happening in the United States. State by state, slowly but surely, marriage equality seems to be happening. With a focus on Alaska, Wyoming, South Dakota, and Kansas, there is a distinct possiblity that marriage equality will become a reality for the entire United States in the next few years. The hosts also talk about the 2014 Synod of the Catholic Church in which the initial phrasing of a document seemed to imply that the Catholic Church was making a more friendly effort to embrace their LGBT members, as well as forgive dicorce - The final draft of that document did not include such positive wording for the LGBT community.

    Tune in live every Sunday morning at 11am Central to www.kzum.org to hear the entire broadcast. Lavender Hill can be found on Facebook, Twitter and  Google+.
