Come on out, St. Petersburg! & the Same Love, Same Rights® team proudly announce our first-ever event in Florida

The first-annual St. Petersburg Same Love, Same Rights® GLBTQ Wedding Expo and Mobile Marriage Summit will be held on Sunday May 4, 2008.  The event will be hosted by the beautiful Hilton St. Petersburg Bayfront, from 12:30 – 3:30pm and is free for the public to attend.

Spotlighting over 50 screened gay-friendly businesses, Music, Samples, Giveaways and Interactive Presentations, this Same Love, Same Rights® Expo will provide an exciting bridge for the GLBTQ community throughout St. Pete, Tampa and beyond to join together in standing up for Equality.  All are welcome!  Featured business professionals participating will represent the Wedding Industry, as well as Travel, Gifts, Real Estate, Legal Services and more.  Couples, singles, advocates and allies are invited to take part in this day of Celebration, Activism and Joy.

2008 marks yet another attempt by Florida conservatives to pass another law banning same-sex marriage.  Legislation is set for the general election later this year… so Now Is The Time to rally together for real ideas on how to stay motivated and enact real change.

Join Us! The Expo will include the Same Love, Same Rights® Mobile Marriage Summit, bringing grassroots activism back to the GLBTQ community.  Take part in our national Commitment Photo Album,™ sign petitions, share in our breakout sessions, let yourself get inspired.  Equality is a matter for each of us!
