Same-Sex Wedding Expo & Marriage Equality Rally to be Held in Tenafly, NJ

RainbowWeddingNetwork.com, producer of many of the nation's first gay and lesbian wedding expos, schedules its next event in celebration of the recent civil union legislation in New Jersey. The Same Love, Same Rights® Wedding Expo will be hosted by the Clinton Inn Hotel in Tenafly, NJ on Sunday, August 12, 2007. It will be held from 12pm - 5pm and is free for the public to attend. The Expo will spotlight the launch of the new Same Love, Same Rights® Mobile Marriage Summit, which will be taking ideas from all who attend on ways to create mass change for the issue of marriage equality in America.

Tenafly, NJ May 27, 2007 -- RainbowWeddingNetwork.com (RWN) will produce the “Same Love, Same Rights”® GLBT Wedding and Family Expo at the Clinton Inn Hotel on August 12, 2007 from noon to 5pm. RWN was created in 2000 to bridge the gap between same-sex couples in need of wedding, travel, life planning and family resources and gay-friendly businesses that support equal rights. To date, RWN has produced thirteen wedding and family expos in cities including San Francisco, Atlanta, Boston and Hartford. The upcoming Expo in New Jersey is free to the public, and all supporters of marriage equality are encouraged to attend.

The “Same Love, Same Rights”® Wedding and Family Expo will feature over 50 GLBT-friendly vendors and pro-gay organizations. Entertainment company Ultrax Disc Jockeys will emcee the event, with live acts scheduled throughout the day including singer/songwriter Lucie Blue Tremblay. The Clinton Inn Hotel’s catering staff will provide food samples and host a celebratory cake-cutting ceremony. All attending guests will receive the latest issue of Rainbow Wedding Network Magazine, a national quarterly publication dedicated to same-sex weddings and marriage equality issues.

The Expo will also serve as the launch point for RWN's new national Mobile Marriage Summit. All those attending the rally will have the opportunity to share their ideas and speak on the issue of marriage equality. There will be petition-signing, guest speakers and photo opportunities for couples to contribute to the online nationwide 'Commitment' Photo Album. Additional Mobile Marriage Summits are planned for New Hampshire and Oregon.

"The civil union legislation in NJ was an historic milestone, and an important move in the right direction," says Cindy Sproul, co-founder of RainbowWeddingNetwork. "But there is more work to be done. We look forward to an Expo filled with fun and vital resources for couples in the planning stages, but also to a day of political networking and a refreshed vision of Equality for the state of New Jersey."

Launched in 2000, RWN has grown to become the most extensive wedding resource for the gay and lesbian community in the United States. RWN produced its first expo in 2003 and released the national Rainbow Wedding Network Magazine in 2006. To date, RWN has produced thirteen different expos in eight states.
