Do you know where you can travel to in Europe and legally hold a wedding for same sex couples?

Even though there are many countries within Europe that offer some form of union or even Marriage - every country with the exception of Gran Canaria (for now) have placed a residency restriction, stopping gay and lesbian couples living outside from coming over and getting married, for example, France, Switzerland, Prague, Spain to name but a few.

What does that mean for us? , a new battle heading its way direct to the EU

If opposite sex couples can come to the UK and have a legally recognized partnership without a residency requirement – why tolerate discrimination and out right to found a family across Europe

We request any residency restriction removed from every country in Europe and state in the USA to allow equality to shine and same sex couples to have an open choice.

This affects so many same sex couples, please share your support

      "I think it's very important for everyone in America to realize right now the state of our country, not just on this issue but on a lot of issues, that it is time to get active again. People have just sat back and just sort of said, oh, let somebody else do it for a long time, and we're seeing what's happening to the country, even freedom of speech. It's not going well. So I think this is a real opportunity for people to see, yes, if you do get out and you do get active, there are other people there. You just have to seek them out."
