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.

Arkansas currently does not allow or recognize marriages between gay and lesbian couples. The state allows adoption by LGBT individuals, but not by gay and lesbian couples.

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

--Scott & Mark, Purple Unions
