~~~~ Sponsor a Luminaire ~~~~
The Center Orlando’s volunteer staff will be assembling and placing red luminaries around Lake Eola to symbolically “Paint The Town” red. This will be a visually stunning moment to celebrate Marriage Equality, the work that has taken place to get us to the Supreme Court, and to reflect on all of the struggles thus far, and work to be done still. If you would like to sponsor a luminaire, we are providing name tags for each bag that we will use to show your sponsorship! Please check our website for the rally to sponsor your own luminaire http://
~~~ INITIAL INFORMATION ~~~
The program for the Marriage Equality Rally is starting to take shape! We are proud to announce that we have tentative speakers we are finalizing confirmations with who will speak from Federal, State, and Local Government, local clergy, activists, entertainers, a celebrity or two, and community members! More information coming as we receive confirmations!
In addition, after the rally we plan on having activities available to celebrate this moment! More to follow.
We will provide a lot more information including the program for this event as our plans finalize throughout May – however this is one you DONT WANT TO MISS!!!
This will be our pep rally / celebration of the SCOTUS decisions, along with more information of upcoming challenges our community still faces for full equality alongside our straight allies!
And most of all, this is going to be FUN! Get ready to have a blast!
~~~~ Event Cost ~~~~
This event is FREE to attend! This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to celebrate these cases making it to the Supreme Court, and we want everyone to participate in this historic moment with us!
