Marriage Equality Album...Join in!

Show America What Marriage Equality Looks Like

Gay and Lesbian Advocates and Defenders (GLAD) have created a project to show America what Marriage Equality looks like. Join in!

Five years ago, a revolution started in Massachusetts. On May 17, 2004, the first same-sex couples ever to marry in the United States stood in churches, backyards, and town halls, and said "I do."

Five years later, 16,500 same-sex couples have married in Massachusetts and 3 more states have adopted full marriage equality – Connecticut, Vermont, and Iowa. Marriage equality bills are moving forward in numerous states, and 18,000 couples married in California before Proposition 8 brought marriage equality to a halt there.

Equality means everyone.
GLAD congratulates and celebrates these loving, committed couples – gay and straight – who have joined in marriage in the past five years.

Join the Celebration!
We invite all couples who have married in an equality state — Massachusetts (since May 17, 2004); Connecticut (since November 12, 2008), Iowa (since April 27, 2009), or California (June 16, 2008 – November 4, 2008)* to help us show America what marriage equality looks like.
