USA, AZ, Tucson - Gay Friendly

As a gay couple together since 1992, we believe that marriage and all the responsibilities and benefits that come with it should be available to committed gay and lesbian couples everywhere. So we created Purple Unions, a place where gay and lesbian couples can find gay friendly wedding vendors to help them plan their perfect wedding day.

Arizona added a constitutional ban against gay marriage to the state constitution in 2008, which was struck down by a Federal Judge on 10/17/14. The state also allows adoption by gay and lesbian couples.
