Illinois News Roundup - June 14, 2024


It's time for our Friday Reporter Roundtable. We typically focus on geographic communities in Illinois. Today, we're focusing on a community that spans everywhere in Illinois.

We are joined by Tom Wray. He is the editor and publisher of the Illinois Eagle, which covers LGBTQ+ and social justice issues across Illinois and beyond. 

First, we'll talk about several incidents that have occurred across the state, including a push to ban LGBTQ+ books. We'll also discuss how Pride events have dealt with pushback and controversy.

Then, we'll learn about some of the Pride events happening across the state.
