Australian gay couple tied the knot mocking ‘no’ campaigners

WEST HOLLYWOOD, UNITED STATES: A wedding cake featuring two grooms and two brides is on display at a local restaurant as part of the preparations for a mass gay wedding in West Hollywood, CA 01 June 2004. Some one hundred gay and lesbian couples tied nots in a ceremony performed by West Hollywood Mayor John Duran. Although simbolic, the ceremony was organized as part of a campaign organized by Duran and other non profit organizations in an effort to change California laws and allow same sex couples to get marriage licenses.

Stuart Henshall and James Brechney, who are based in Sydney, will be getting married at the 40th Mardi Gras with one particular style note in mind. Mardi Gras’ 40th anniversary is a great date for a same-sex wedding, though they had to hurry up. The couple will be saying ‘I do’ on top of a giant wedding cake float as it pulls into Sydney’s Taylor Square on Saturday night celebrating their own love and the massive win of the LGBT community in the country. “The thing with Mardi Gras is the floats don’t stop for anybody,” Brechney said, “You’ve got to keep moving your truck so we’ve quickly got to swap the rings, say I do, sign the forms, throw a confetti canon and we’ll be married right there in the heart of Oxford Street.” They both are in dept to those who started the LGBT rights movement in Australia, so this is how they wanted to honor them.
