St. Paul MN "Freedom to Marry Week"

“The State of Minnesota is about to write history. Becoming the first Midwest state in the country to legislatively legalize the freedom to marry for all committed couples is an event worth celebrating. Today, we line the Freedom to Marry Bridge with pride flags to show the importance of this legislation to the City of Saint Paul, the families that live here, and to those who have been waiting for this day for many years. Connie and I have been married for 24 years and it is time all of our friends and neighbors have recognition for their love from the state they call home.”

Saint Paul Mayor Chris Coleman, May 13, 2013.

Mayor Coleman issued a proclamation proclaiming May 13 through May 17 “Freedom to Marry Week” in the City of Saint Paul. Pride flags now line the Wabasha Street Bridge, which has been temporarily named the “Freedom to Marry Bridge.”
