"Just Married" Returns to Chicago

By Aaron Bailey in Arts & Entertainment on Mar 10, 2005 7:29PM


A year ago, San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom ignited a national debate by marrying same-sex partners. Thousands of gay and lesbian couples from all over the country were married during the first month. The California Supreme Court later voided the nuptials.

Images taken by photojournalists taken during those historic days are on display until March 31 at Jane Addams Hull House Center for Arts and Culture (1136 West Wilson Avenue).

The exhibit, co-sponsored by the City of Chicago, is open everyday with varying hours.

The exhibit was on display this past summer at the Rushmore Gallery in the West Loop this past summer. If you didn't get a chance to see the photographs then, here's your second chance.
