ST. LOUIS –Show Me Marriage, a grassroots public education campaign to show all Missourians that Missouri is ready for marriage equality, is creating a list of LGBT-inclusive wedding vendors.

 

According to Katie Stuckenschneider, Communication Organizer for PROMO, Missouri's statewide LGBT advocacy organizaiton, the resource list is being compiled "in prep for marriage for ALL that is about to happen shortly here in Missouri.”

While support for marriage equality is well over 50 percent across the nation with 33 states and the District of Columbia now recognizing same-sex marriage, some businesses continue to refuse to cater to gay and lesbian couples.

 

Earlier this summer, the Oregon Bureau of Labor and Industries found a suburban Portland bakery violated the civil rights of a same-sex couple by refusing to bake a cake for the women’s wedding.

 

On Oct. 3, Kansas City Circuit Court Judge Dale Youngs ruled same-sex couples married out-of-state must be recognized by the state of Missouri.

 

A ruling in a related case heard last month on behalf of four gay and lesbian couples married in St. Louis City Hall in June is expected at any time.

 

Missouri’s Amendment 2, which defines marriage in Missouri as between one man and one woman, was approved by 71 percent of voters in August 2004.

 

Show Me Marriage was founded by PROMO, Progress Missouri, ACLU of Missouri and Freedom to Marry. For the latest on Missouri's marriage equality cases, check out http://www.showmemarriage.com
