There are few hotly contested races for the Illinois General Assembly this year, although gays and lesbians certainly will follow with interest the race in the 34th Representative District, where Democrat Larry McKeon is endeavoring to become the first openly gay member of the legislature.

OUTLINES here provides information on all Chicago-area state candidates, drawn from OUTLINES and/or IMPACT questionnaires, information from other endorsing organizations, and the candidates' voting records, particularly on state lesbigay-rights legislation and the state ban on same-sex marriage. If no information is given for a particular candidate, that means none was available.

Candidates endorsed by the Illinois Federation for Human Rights (IFHR) Political Action Committee all have either supported the state gay-rights bill or supported gay rights in another jurisdiction. Additionally, the IFHR PAC gave campaign contributions to all those who voted against the marriage ban. Those endorsed by Personal PAC have 100 percent pro-choice records or questionnaire responses; those rated "preferred" by Personal PAC have taken mostly pro-choice stances.
