USA, IN, Indianapolis - Gay Owned
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.
Indiana currently does not allow or recognize marriages between gay and lesbian couples, but the state does allow adoption by gay and lesbian individuals, and some jusrisdictions allow adoption by gay and lesbian couples. The state is facing a lawsuit over its ban on marriage equality, and may vote on a constitutional ban in 2016.
