Born June 24. 2001,
The Wedding Party pioneered initiatives that opened hearts and minds. We brought the faces of equal marriage rightS into america's living rooms. we were gay and non gay people standing side by side, taking a stand for love and each other. IN 5 years, we united hundreds of gay and non gay couples, providing hope and inspiration to all.

LOVE TRANSFORMED LAW


LOVE TRANSFORMED LAW


Congratulations everyone!


Congratulations everyone!


We won the right to marry.

Thank you all for showing the world
that our lives and love matter.

But the battle is not over.
There are narrow minded people and politicians
who want to control our lives and revoke
the rights we worked so hard to win.

Please support those that support human rights
and put an to discrimination for good.

One struggle. One fight.
