Whose love stories will win the most outrageous gay weddings ever? You decide!

We at the ACLU are chipping in to help 5 same-sex couples have a Big, Gay, (Il)legal Wedding to highlight the unfair patchwork of state marriage laws and why it’s so important for everyone to have the freedom to marry. We’re giving $5,000 to couples with the best ideas for how they’ll cross state lines to tie the knot.

Help our Montana couples get hitched… Vote today. And tell your friends to vote. Let’s get someone from Montana a Big Gay Illegal Wedding!
