GAY & LESBIAN WEDDING EXPO RETURNS TO TAMPA
As the debate continues throughout Florida regarding marriage and family rights for the state’s gay and lesbian citizens, the national resource RainbowWeddingNetwork.com is returning to Tampa with its tour of ‘Same Love, Same Rights’ LGBT Wedding Expos.
A diversity of gay-friendly businesses will participate including ceremony & reception venues, event coordinators, cake decorators, musical entertainment, photographers, formal wear, florists, travel planners & realtors. Couples & advocates from surrounding areas are invited to attend. Rainbow Wedding Network has produced 58 Gay & Lesbian Wedding Expos in twenty states since 2003.
"Tampa/St Pete is an area with such a dynamic & active LGBT community, and yet couples do not have the resources they need to plan their committed lives together," says RainbowWeddingNetwork co-founder Marianne Puechl. "It's imperative that all people in Florida, including our straight allies, join together around this issue. As a minority, as we become more cohesive, our rights will become more & more attainable, even in states where it’s under serious debate. And with the approaching election cycle, any gay & lesbian event is important for community members & allies to gather together, share efforts and motivate one another."
Rainbow Wedding Network's ‘Same Love, Same Rights’ Gay & Lesbian Wedding Expo is a timely resource for same-sex couples planning their commitment ceremonies, as well as singles, advocates and allies who support equal rights in marriage.
