The mayor of Denver, Michael Hancock, will ring in Colorado’s new civil unions bill with midnight ceremonies on the morning of May 1. On Top Magazine reports:
One Colorado, the state’s leading gay rights advocate, is organizing the event to take place in Denver’s Webb Building. The 2-hour event will be held in the building’s atrium, where Hancock will preside over some of the state’s first ceremonies. Hancock said he is “honored to take part in this historic event, uniting committed couples who were for too long excluded from the same benefits and protections provided to their fellow citizens. At midnight May 1, our great state will bring down some of the senseless walls that have divided us and state in one voice: ‘Everyone matters.'”
Colorado’s gay and lesbian couples will be able to join in civil unions starting in May.
