Did you and your significant other plan the wedding of your dreams? Tell us about it so we can share your LGBTQ marriage stories with the community.
With an increase in backlash regarding same-sex marriage equality – bakers refusing to make wedding cakes for same-sex weddings and politicians using us as campaign fodder to bolster their conservative bona fides – it is important for us to keep up the pressure against the forces that want us to disappear from society.
But, more importantly by remaining visible and sharing our stories about love and family, we help other LGBTQ people and it gives us an opportunity to recognize our friends, thank them and rally around them as they support us.
Please submit your LGBTQ wedding stories and photos to Include your names, wedding location, LGBTQ-inclusive vendors used, wedding date and all the wonderful details that made your day so special. For more information, please visit
