Baltimore Gay Pride attendees were treated to something special this last weekend – a mass wedding of twenty gay and lesbian couples. LGBTQ Nation reports:
Twenty same-sex couples were married Sunday in a mass wedding ceremony at the annual Baltimore pride festival. The ceremony at Baltimore’s Druid Hill Park was officiated by Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, and was the first mass same-sex wedding ceremony in the city’s history. “I now pronounce you married,” Rawlings-Blake said as the couples kissed and embraced each other. “It was a very touching ceremony and it was truly my honor to officiate … to celebrate love and equality.”
Maryland has recognized full marriage equality since January 1st. Hooray for the happy couples!
