WHY: “It is truly a victory for our minority that same-gender commitments are now being recognized in so many states,” states RainbowWeddingNetwork co-founder Cindy Sproul . “It’s a time to celebrate, for all citizens to actively and enthusiastically join together and envision the next steps for the LGBT community in the Chicago area as well as throughout the country.”
Rainbow Wedding Network’s ‘Same Love, Same Rights’ Gay & Lesbian Wedding Expo is a timely resource for same-sex couples planning their weddings, as well as singles, advocates and allies who support the expansion of civil unions into the full equality of marriage.
