FLG has organised a large scale wedding and celebrated the International Family Equality Day, on the 1st of May, and as the final and closing ceremony of the 2nd European Meeting of LGBT Families – Catalonia 2012.
We did a wonderful ceremony with 13 couples from different European countries. We enjoyed thceremony freely and publically and in the company of their children children.
We also married Catalan and Spanish couples who according to the new law could enjoy a wedding, which is legally binding.
After the ceremony we invited all the families in the event to the wedding reception!
We made it known to the rest of the world that there are still many countries in Europe who prevent equality and discriminate against lesbian and gay couples by denying them the right to marriage and adoption of their children.
