What's the Difference Between a Straight and a Gay Wedding?
By Bernadette Smith CEO & Founder of The equality Institute, USA
I get this question all the time, "What's the difference between a straight and a gay wedding?" The last person to ask was sweetheart Colin Cowie, whom I met last week at Engage! I'd be out of business if I couldn't answer it. It's the reason there's demand for a gay wedding producer. Here's a short list of differences:
50% of the country is opposed to gay marriage and many in the wedding industry do not support it either - couples face discrimination.
And it's perfectly legal to discriminate against LGBT couples in 28 U.S. states (i.e. a vendor can say, "I don't want to work with you.")
Who do you think fills the role of the "bride" during a wedding processional, when there are two brides or two grooms? We typically avoid anyone assuming this role by having the couple process together, hand-in-hand, or down two aisles simultaneously...
What do you call an engaged lesbian who doesn't feel like a "bride?"
Just a little food for thought...the list goes on. How do you answer this question?
The even is Organized by GayCostaRica.com with the support of IGLTA & the Costa Rican Diverse Chamber of Commerce.
