Steamy Walking Tours in New York, London, Tokyo and Paris

Apr 5th, 2014

Great cities are always changing, and as property developers and big businesses move in, often the first neighborhoods to lose their character are those that operate on the margins - places where economies are decidedly underground. Even though a lot of that gritty neighborhood character is lost to history, there are audioguides out there that capture the essence of times... read_more

With the advent of food blogs, social media, and videos posted online, the food scene here has never been more closely watched.

Why Marriage Equality Polarized France

Apr 21st, 2013

Many assumed that France, with its secular culture and its comfort level with most things sexual, would pass marriage equality easily with little rancor. Instead, the country is seen some of the largest demonstrations against gay marriage in the world. The Global Post examines why:

Smelling blood after a bruising first year for President Francois Hollande, right-wing leaders have... read_more

French Catholic Prelate Trashes Marriage Equality, Saying It's Only For a Few

France: Government to Introduce Marriage Equality Legislation in October

At Purple Unions, we take marriage equality seriously. As a gay couple who have been together since 1992, we know that gay and lesbian couples can and do form long-term, stable, supportive relationships, and we believe the institution of marriage and all the responsabilities and benefits that come with it should be opened up to committed gay and lesbian couples everywhere. To this end, we created Purple Unions as a place where gay and lesbian couples can find gay friendly wedding vendors to help them plan their perfect wedding day.

France added Civil Solidarity Pacts (PACS) for gay couples in 1999. In November, 2012, a new Socialist Government swept into power, promising to legalize gay marriage. Huge protests swept the country, but the law was approved on May 18th, 2013, with the first weddings taking place on May 29th.

We hope that you find these resources useful, and that you'll join us in the fight for marriage equality!

--Scott & Mark, Purple Unions
