    Just goes to show how diverse the country is, and how we're really in transition.

    I was on a bus last year with my bf, headed from LA to Santa Monica. When I kissed him, he was still a little nervous about doing that in public. But when all the people in the back of the bus saw us, it became this spontaneous kissing and cuddling festival, with two other gay couples, and one straight couple -- all smiling the biggest smiles. It was wonderful, and I'll always remember it.

    Love really does conquer all. It just takes time. But in the meantime, California, as usual, is 5-10 years ahead of the rest of the country. That's one of of the main reasons I left the Midwest.

    In ten years, I want to go back to Chicago so I can kiss my future bf on a bus and see if it gets the same reaction it did in Santa Monica.

    .... "Hughes are considering filing a complaint against the Chicago Transit Authority."

    2 paragraphs later:

    "The couple has filed a complaint with the CTA and are considering legal action."

    But still, that's sooo stupid. DO PEOPLE NOT LEARN ABOUT ROSA PARKS ANYMORE? DON'T HATE ON PEOPLE ON DA BUS. SRSLY.

    Ok on futher reading, whoever edits this website needs reading glasses or an english class.

    One guy is suing the "METRA", and "he in the process of transitioning"

    HE apparently is now both a pronoun and a verb all rolled up into one! conveinient.

    You live in SD. SD, Orange County, and the Central and Imperial Valleys are all still in the Eisenhower era.

    But the rest of the state still outweighs those areas, cause there's more people, so, net: Cali still rocks compared to other states icon_smile.gif

    lol, good point.

    If you plan on coming to the U.S. to get married instead of in your own country and want to do that anytime in the near future you will probably have to try some other state. Like Iowa, maybe.

    I've both witnessed and been part of gay kisses on Chicago transit and throughout the city, without any issues. I ride the "L" every day to work and back, and I often witness gay couples kissing each other as they part ways to go to their respective workplaces. Please don't confuse one ignorant a-hole driving a bus as some sort of representative for the city of Chicago or the state of Illinois.

    I used to live in Sacramento, and I actually saw a bumper sticker on a car with the word "homosexual" and a big red "X" across it. I didn't jump to conclusions about the whole state of California based on one idiot.

    I can't believe you actually think Chicago is 10 years behind California. We're one of the most liberal cities around!

    i'll say! a city with that much corruption couldn't possibly even be remotely backward!


    We're not talking about corruption here (which by the way is a stereotype given to Chicago but one that is probably fairly accurate for a lot of other places across the US). We're talking about what parts of the country are close-minded to diversity in sexual orientation, etc. Chicago does not fall into that category. Illinois is one of the few states that has civil unions. The Center on Halsted here in the city is the largest LGBT community center in the midwest. Howard Brown is one of the nation's largest LGBT healthcare organizations in the country, also based here in Chicago. I could go on and on, but I don't expect a response since you've decided to take the school-yard approach of posting something and then deleting your profile and running away like a child.

    I was on a bus in Connecticut a couple months ago, where the driver pulled over and stopped the bus, because a straight couple was kissing. She told them to knock it off or get off the bus. These were grown adults. No one wants to look at that. There are other people on the bus.

    Interesting point. I have always said that gays should be treated like straights. No special privileges, but no second-class status either. What a straight can do, we should be able to do.
