Orlando Mayor Celebrates Florida Same-Sex Marriage

"January 6 was a historic day for our City and our State as we became the 36th state (plus D.C.) to provide marriage equality for all. I was honored to host a wedding ceremony for 44 couples at Orlando City Hall.

The lifting of the ban on same-sex marriage in our State is advancing civil rights and equal treatment for all of Orlando’s residents and provides more than 1,200 legal and economic protections for same-sex families.

Because we have and continue to embrace diversity, Orlando is at the forefront for attracting businesses, talent and people from across the globe. I am proud that Orlando is a welcoming, multi-cultural community that people from across the country and globe want to call home.

I hope you will join me in congratulating the couples who celebrated their wedding Tuesday."

Orlando, Florida Mayor Buddy Dyer, January 6, 2015.
