Talk about commitment – an Illinois man plans to climb Mount Everest raise awareness for marriage equality. WPSD reports:

A veteran mountain climber is training to ascend Mount Everest to increase awareness for marriage equality in Illinois. Chicagoan Joe Rudy says he thinks the mountain climb isn’t much different than the fight for gay rights. The 26-year-old Rudy has already climbed Mount McKinley and Aconcagua. A fundraiser will be held for Rudy on June 27 at Primitive Gallery in Chicago. Proceeds will benefit the Equality Illinois Education Project and the Human Rights Campaign Foundation.

The phrase “climb any mountain” takes on a whole new meaning.
