USA, FL, Ft. Lauderdale - 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.

Florida does not recognize relationships between gay and lesbian couples, and does not allow gay and lesbian couples to adopt. But several lawsuits are working their way through the state.
