Going to the Chapel of Love at PRIDE! Ground-breaking event!!
For the first time at the Vancouver Pride Celebration thousands of spectators cheered as they witnessed Sister Festivus Illuminata of the Vancouver Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence solemnize the gender-neutral marriage of five Vancouver couples.
Same sex marriage has been legal in Ontario since 2003. Two years later, Canada became the fourth country in the world to legalize same-sex marriage nationwide with the enactment of the Civil Marriage Act, which provides a GENDER-NEUTRAL marriage definition.
"Marriage should be between a spouce and a spouse, not a gender and a gender."
LGBTQ2+ couples want to marry for all the same reasons as their opposite-sex counterparts. These reasons include: for legal security, to publicly celebrate their commitment, to provide greater legal protection for their children, or simply because they are in love.
