Governor Quinn has scheduled a signing ceremony for November 20 at the UIC Forum.

A legislation celebration was under way Thursday night at Sidetrack in Lakeview.

It was attended by leading supporters of the bill, including its two legislative sponsors.

The bill -- passed earlier this week - makes gay marriages legal in Illinois starting in June.
