OUTspoken for Equality, the Stonewall Democrats of Western New York and the Human Rights Campaign will be hosting a party in honor of marriage in all forms – not just the royal kind.
On Friday, April 29, the El Museo Gallery will welcome local supporters of civil marriage to join in the fun of watching the broadcast of the Royal Wedding of Prince William and Catherine Middleton, while also showing their support for gay and lesbian couples fighting for those same marriage rights in New York State. The Royal Wedding broadcast will begin at 7 p.m. During that time, guests are also welcome to partake in signing letters that will be sent to State Senators explaining why marriage equality is important.
Entry to the party will be $5, which will cover the tea and biscuits (and other not-so-English style refreshments). There will also be a raffle and guest appearances by some very important characters, including the Queen of England, her royal guards, the Bishop of Canterbury and Hyacinth Bucket. All funds raised will go toward the OUTspoken for Equality letter-writing campaign to support civil marriage.
The El Museo Gallery is located at 91 Allen Street near the corner of Allen and Delaware. The party will run from 7 to 11 p.m. To learn more about the event, visit the Facebook page (photo).
