Events For Same Sex Couples

Summer is officially upon us, meaning that Pride Season is officially underway. Gay and lesbian couples who are planning to tie the knot or are seeking more wedding-related resources and products have a lot to look forward to this month.

Get ready for next week's product launch of an amazing new line of rings. We're bringing this fabulous new line to our customers with the help of a talented jeweler and you'll love what you see. We'll be offering individual wedding bands and engagement bands and fabulous sets which live at the intersection where traditional meets trendsetting. Stay tuned for more details.

In Washington, D.C.

Capital Pride begins today and runs through June 13. There are always great activities and events and, this year, Pink Dot Concepts is offering a gay wedding expo on June 6 from 1-6 pm at the Hotel Palomar. There, couples will have the chance to meet vendors and attend a few workshops (with topics such as adoption, getting legally married, bridal registry tips, and more).

In New York

Same sex couples, like their opposite sex counterparts, are now able to register as domestic partners in the state of New York. Like most domestic partnership programs, couples will find increased recognition at the state or local level, but still not have access to many of the rights of marriage. For a more comprehesive list of benefits, visit the City Clerk office's online registration page.

NYC Pride will kick off on June 20 and culminates on June 27 with its annual PrideFest.


The LGBT community will take to the streets in San Francisco from June 26-27and in Los Angeles from June 11-13. And, for those of you in the Midwest, you can drop in on Chicago's Pride celebration on June 27.
