Minnesota Celebrates Gay Marriage with Rainbow Bridges and Concerts
Yesterday late afternoon, Minnesota’s governor, Mark Dayton, signed the state’s gay-marriage bill into law to a crowd of over a thousand outside the state capitol in St. Paul. After the signing the city quickly put together a very special concert called “Love is Law” where various performers put on a celebratory concert for marriage-equality supporters. While St. Paul’s bridge was adorned with rainbow flags this week with the governor saying: “I renamed the Wabasha Bridge the Freedom to Marry Bridge…” Minneapolis wants to get in on the same-sex-marriage action too! They lit their I-35 bridge in rainbow colors and wrote an exciting message on their Facebook.
Start planning now! At 12:01 a.m. on the first day that all Minnesotans are able to get married, historic Minneapolis City Hall will be open and available for couples wishing to tie the knot. Minneapolis Mayor R.T. Rybak will be on hand and happy to officiate weddings that night.
We get the chills with how excited Minnesota’s government is about this historic law. We want to be there August 1 to celebrate with you all! And if you plan on getting hitched that day be sure to send us some photos!
