I was at a party last night and some of my friends there started to make a toast. The entire room got quiet and they announced that the mayor of Washington DC or some lawmaker signed a bill into action yesterday that would legalize gay marriage in Washington DC.
Now, I don’t know if it is true or not that Gay Marriage is now legal in Washington DC, but it isn’t really surprising that gay marriage would pass in Washington DC because of how liberal it is as a city and that it is probably one of the largest gay cities or has one of the largest gay populations in the US. Not to mention that most of the politicians for VA, MD and DC are always in the Pride Parades, visit the gay bars during election time and also support the gay community, both Republican and Democrat so when it is time to vote on gay marriage or not, chances are they will all say yes and the population of Washington DC will more than likely also vote yes for gay marriage.
It would be pretty cool to see the first gay wedding on the white house, or in front of the monuments or even on Captiol Hill and actually have it be a legally recognized marriage. Gays get married all the time in Washignton DC and if the rumor that it is now legal is true, it would be a great way to attract more tourists and even more gay couples, especially since DC is an extremely gay friendly city and has a ton of amazing places for weddings.
You wouldn’t think about it normally as a wedding destination, but think about what we have that most other cities don’t.
We have tons of museums like the Smithsonians, we have some of the most recognizable landmarks in the world like the memorials and monuments, we have stadiums and professional sports teams, we also have some amazing restaurants on the water front and even the Kennedy Center and historical theatres like Fords Theatre where Abraham Lincoln was shot.
There are so many amazing places in Washington DC to get married and have amazing looking wedding pictures with historic buildings behind you and if the mayor did sign the bill making gay marriage legal in Washington DC, then you should definitely at least consider it for your gay wedding or for your friends who are looking at where to go to get married.
Remember, this is still only a rumor since I have not seen anything to back it up or the actual law itself, but if it is true, I know gay marriage is definitely going to be voted on soon, then that is another great step towards a more equal United States and even more reason for you to come visit Washington DC and also plan to have your wedding in Washington DC. I’ll definitely keep you all updated if I hear any more on whether or not Gay Marriage is now Legal in Washington DC.
