reports that Evan Wolfson, founder and president of Freedom to Marry, will be leading the 2012 Chicago Pride Parade. Wolfson hopes that his presence, along with that of The ACLU of Illinois and other organizations, can draw support for the fight for freedom to marry in Illinois.

Freedom to Marry focuses on a three-tiered agenda: securing marriage freedom in more states; winning support from a majority of the population; and ending federal marriage discrimination.
