The Illegal Wedding Fair was a New York event for same sex couples to get the support they wanted to make their rebel marriages awesome.
If I may quote: “You are cordially invited to attend an illicit new wedding fair featuring a hand-picked selection of talented event professionals dedicated to helping same-sex couples celebrate their love and commitment in style. “
Marriage equality is now simply a fact in the State of New York, but resistance to same sex marriage continues in many parts of the country. The results of the recent 2016 presidential election makes us think we might be a little farther from the goal than we once thought.
So the Illegal Wedding Fair must live on here in spirit, and who knows? It may have to pop up again in real life in some of our less tolerant states.
And to our new President and his cabinet we say, “Let them eat wedding cake!”
