We won marriage equality on a federal level in 2015, and the exciting momentum for equality that had been generating for years prior seemed to suddenly fall flat. We won, what more is there to do? Answer: so much.

Speaking directly to the wedding industry, LGBTQ+ discrimination still runs rampant as couples are denied services for who they are and/or love (which businesses can still legally do in 30 states). And so many pros unintentionally turn off LGBTQ+ couples by the language they use and imagery they share in their marketing.

Language evolves, traditions evolve,
and it is our job to educate ourselves on it.

And for those who do feel they’ve done the work (yay!), there is still always something to learn. As advocates, we must continue to pursue equitable standards of existing for queer people across cultures, and acquire new resources to support and uphold those standards. Language evolves, traditions evolve, and it is our job to educate ourselves on it.

The Inclusive Awareness Conference

This need for continued education and conversation led to the creation of the National Gay Wedding Association, to be an official guide for the wedding industry, and the NGWA’s first official conference, The Inclusive Awareness Conference, plans to do just that.

On January 5, top thought-leaders in the inclusive wedding space will be leading virtual presentations and conversations to help elevate your wedding business by incorporating an inclusive mindset and practices.
