Our LGBT Wedding Expo is a safe space to express your love.

As the organizer of the Say I Do LGBT Wedding Expo event in DC, this woman shares her story about how she became involved with the event. Our photojournalist thinks her event is a great example of what lies a head for American culture: a world where LGTBQ is a part of the whole and no longer the "other.”

Being in a room where people encourage your love story is the greatest gift.

This expo gives people more confidence to express their story. Now is a great time for the community, and everyone is loud out and proud. We are an LGBT Wedding Expo, but we are straight friendly. It’s a place where you can understand how to love other people better.
