Washington, USA: Seattle City Hall to Open on Sunday, December 9th for Gay/Lesbian Weddings

Saturday, November 17th, 2012

Seattle City Hall will open for a few hours on Sunday, December 9 to celebrate what are expected to be the first weddings of gay and lesbian couples in Washington state.

Eight municipal judges will be on hand to marry couples between the hours of noon and 5PM.
