A reception hall that turned away a gay couple’s wedding in February has now turned away a lesbian couple as well.

The Dallas Voice reports:

Melissa Caposello was disturbed when she contacted All Occasion Party Place Wednesday and was told the venue doesn’t believe in holding same-sex wedding receptions… When a woman answered the phone, Caposello said she and her partner were planning to marry next June and she asked about prices. The woman then asked if partner meant they were a same-sex couple, to which Caposello said she replied that they were. The woman then said the venue didn’t do same-sex weddings. “She said it was because we don’t believe in it,” Caposello said. “I just kind of was like ‘That’s incredibly odd,’ and she did not say anything. And I was like, ‘OK, well thank you very much.”

As time goes on, we hope these kinds of incidents become fewer and fewer. But in the meantime, it’s important that we support venues that support us.

USA, Texas: Gay Fort Worth Councilman Pushing for Marriage Equality

An openly gay Fort Worth Councilman is pushing for marriage equality in the state of Texas.

The Star-Telegram reports:

Councilman Joel Burns and his partner have been hoping for marriage equality in Texas for over 20 years, since they first said their vows. Now Burns thinks marriage equality in the state is within sight, just two or three years out. But the action probably won’t come from the Legislature, Burns said at the Dallas Democratic Forum. Instead, he thinks marriage equality will come from the federal government. Since the U.S. Supreme Court in June overturned Section 3 of the Defense of Marriage Act, which barred same-sex couples from receiving more than 1,000 federal benefits, including filing joint tax returns, Social Security survivor benefits and immigration status, Burns and his partner, J.D. Angle, might be able to file federal income taxes together for the first time.

How amazing is it that we are even talking about the possibility of marriage equality in a state like Texas? Yes, some of these red states are going to have to be pulled along kicking and screaming, but that’s always been the case with civil rights movements.

Texas, USA: Gay Couple Refused Use of Wedding Venue “Because of God”

Thursday, February 21st, 2013

Ben Allen and Justin HudginsA gay couple in Fort Worth, Texas, was searching for a venue for their upcoming wedding reception, and was turned away from the “All Occasion Party Place” for religious reasons. The Dallas Voice reports:

The owner of the All Occasion Party Place told Ben Allen and Justin Hudgins that she would not rent to them because they are gay, they said. After learning they are gay, she said in an email to them that: “… it is because of God that I will not be a part in your reception and I know he loves you but not what you are doing.” “It almost felt like a sucker-punch to the face,” Allen said.

Same story, different place.
