Mass Gay Wedding Announced for World Pride

A video from City Hall to make you smile, because everyone likes mass weddings.

20120625pride10

A non-embarrassing video came out of City Hall today, with Councillor Kristyn Wong-Tam (Ward 27, Toronto Centre-Rosedale) and Deputy Mayor Norm Kelly (Ward 40, Scarborough-Agincourt) promoting a mass wedding of 200 LGBTQ couples at Casa Loma during World Pride celebrations. City Hall can be a zany and sometimes depressing place, but one thing that will lift the spirit of anyone is the sight of happy newlyweds holding hands in the atrium as they return from their wedding ceremony in the east tower.

This video lifts our spirits too, reminding us of an inclusive Toronto that we can be proud of, and of civic officials who embrace those principles. In other words, it’s the perfect chaser for all the news about That Other Guy.

The wedding, dubbed a “Celebration of Love,” will take place on June 26. For couples interested in signing up, the mass wedding is free of charge.
