Toronto To Host Mass Gay Wedding For 200 Couples During World Pride In June: VIDEO

Torontopride

Toronto will be hosting World Pride this June, and the organizers have got a record-breaking idea up their sleeve. 

On June 26th, 200 LGBTQ couples will be invited to tie the knot at the world's largest queer wedding. The event is called A Celebration of Love: A Grand Pride Wedding and it will take place in the gardens at Casa Loma, a beautiful castle in the city. 

Because World Pride is an international event, couples from countries where same-sex marriages are not yet legal will have the opportunity to be recognized. Councilor Kristyn Wong-Tam and deputy mayor Norm Kelly also see the event as part of a healing process after anti-gay remarks and actions from mayor Rob Ford.

Now Toronto reports:

Wong-Tam, the only openly gay council member, said the celebration is also a chance for Toronto to turn the page after Mayor Rob Ford made international headlines with his anti-gay actions. In February Ford tried to have the Pride flag removed from a ceremonial pole outside City Hall. Last week he was caught on tape making disparaging remarks about “the gays” who led the flag-raising campaign...

“I think that it’s time for us to show a different face of Toronto, to demonstrate that this is a city of equality and inclusive values, a city that celebrates all its diverse communities,” Wong-Tam said.

She noted that the city has a proud history of protecting LGBTQ rights. In 1973 council passed a motion prohibiting discrimination against city employees based on their sexual orientation, the first legislation of its kind in Canada. The first same-sex marriages in Canada took place here in 2001, four years before Parliament passed legislation making them legal.

That history “can’t be undone by just one person,” Wong-Tam said.

The event will be free to the couples who choose to participate, there will be officiants from a variety of religious and non-religious backgrounds in attendance, and...

The wedding colours will, of course, be rainbow.

Actress Sara Gilbert (from Rosanne and co-host of The Talk) got married this past weekend to musician Linda Perry (former frontwoman of 4 Non Blondes).

Perry popped the question to Gilbert last spring in "the most amazing proposal ever" at an L.A. park. So far neither woman has made mention of their weekend wedding via social media.

Gilbert has two children from her previous relationship with TV producer Alison Adler, her nine-year-old son Levi and her six-year-old daughter Sawyer.


Crowds Cheer For One Of UK's First Married Gay Couples: VIDEO

Flashinglights

As we just reported, Peter McGraith and David Cabreza of Islington were among the first same-sex couples (and quite possibly the first) to get married once marriage equality was legalized in England and Wales after midnight. When the happy couple emerged from Islington Town Hall they were greeted with a warm and raucous crowd wishing them well.  

Meanwhile Prime Minister David Cameron, who fought hard for marriage equality, released a statement today, as Joe.My.God. highlights:

"The introduction of same-sex civil marriage says something about the sort of country we are. It says we are a country that will continue to honour its proud traditions of respect, tolerance and equal worth. It also sends a powerful message to young people growing up who are uncertain about their sexuality. It clearly says ‘you are equal’ whether straight or gay. That is so important in trying to create an environment where people are no longer bullied because of their sexuality – and where they can realise their potential, whether as a great mathematician like Alan Turing, a star of stage and screen like Sir Ian McKellen or a wonderful journalist and presenter like Clare Balding. We are a nation that is growing stronger economically because of our long term economic plan. But I hope we can also be a country that is growing stronger socially because we value love and commitment equally. Let us raise a toast to that – and all those getting married this weekend.”

Former ‘Who’s The Boss’ Star Danny Pintauro to Marry Boyfriend

Dan&WilDanny Pintauro, the former child actor who played Jonathon Brower on the 1980s sitcom Who’s The Boss, will soon be married to boyfriend Wil Tabares, according to the couple’s website.

Wrote Tabares:

The BIG DAY is coming soon! I mean like, REAL SOON! Dan and I are totally excited and can't wait to... seal the deal. I'm sure many of you out there know what we're talking about. We're still finalizing all of our plans and trying to get a final guest count. There's so much to do and plan for a wedding, I think it was a bit overwhelming for both Dan and myself. We really didn't know what to expect. But everyone so far has been more than hepful & we appreciate everything everyone is doing for us. We'll see you on the Big Day!

Last April, the couple announced their engagement and their plan to move to California after Prop 8 was overturned. A live-stream of the exchange of nuptials will be provided on the couple's site.

Best wishes to the two!
