So You’re EnGAYged – A brand new LGBTQ wedding website!

Photobucket

I’m a huge fan of Kelly of the Two Brides Blog, so when she announced that she was teaming up with Lara Swanson of Lara Swanson Photography to launch an LGBTQ-focused wedding website, I was absolutely thrilled. The official launch of the site So You’re EnGAYged was yesterday, and the site looks absolutely fantastic. It features multiple same-sex wedding bloggers, LGBTQ-friendly vendor profiles, wedding tips for both the engaged couple and the vendors who serve them, and LGBT news.

The vendors DO NOT pay to be featured on the site – they are put through a verification process to ensure that they are actively LGBTQ friendly, and the site only accepts advertisements from vendors who have been vetted.  All I can say is it is high time for a website like this, and Kelly is an absolute hero for envisioning it and making it a reality. Please head over and check out all of her hard work!

freedom to marry week

I know, I know… I’m a few days late on this. I kept meaning to post about it, all week, but extra blogging time has been quite elusive. I did want to officially state this blog’s (ok, my) support of “Freedom to Marry Week”, being hosted for the 12th year in a row by the Freedom to Marry organization, which is a “gay and non-gay partnership to win marriage equality nationwide.”  The goal of this week is to encourage people to talk with their family, friends, and community about why they support marriage equality. Take the pledge today.

To say that I am enthusiastic about this cause would be a gross understatement. I believe that this is THE civil rights issue of our generation, and am fully confident that equality will be granted in my lifetime, hopefully sooner than later.

I’d also like to take this opportunity to post the “Fidelity: Don’t Divorce” video that’s been making the rounds on the blogosphere. If this doesn’t tug your heartstrings, I don’t know what will. I wish only the best to all of these families and the many others who declare their love and commitment regardless of what the law says.
