Chicago Fire pro football team partners with Equality Illinois

The Chicago Fire have teamed up with LGBT rights group Equality Illinois to create the first formal partnership between the one of the Midwest's largest gay rights organizations and a local professional sports team.

Initially announced during the Chicago Pride Parade late last month, when members of the Chicago Fire organization marched with the Equality Illinois float and its "I Do" marriage equality theme, the partnership involves several events during the month of July promoting lesbian, gay, bi-sexual and transgender rights awareness and providing the team an opportunity to provide support to the local LGBT community.
Other Chicago sports teams, including the Cubs and White Sox, have held promotional nights and donated items for silent auction fundraisers in the past, but none have officially partnered with Equality Illinois.
