    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!

    The Error of Marriage Equality

    in Lifestyle

    When the was drawn between State and Religion that was an earmark for destruction.  What amazes me is those so called churches that are for this so called "Marriage Equality" when we as the body of Christ is suppose to be living and following the way of the same Holy Bible, the same words, the same words in red (to depict the words of Jesus), So how do you justify condoning this so called "Marriage Equality"?
