Ben & Jerry’s celebrates same-sex marriage

A local couple wed at the Georgetown Ben & Jerry’s Scoop Shop on Thursday, with the company’s co-founder joining the celebration.

“Equal rights and treatment for all people was a founding principle of
Ben & Jerry’s when we started the company over 30 years ago,” said
Jerry Greenfield, co-founder of Ben & Jerry’s. “We are proud that the
District of Columbia is recognizing the rights of gay and lesbian
couples to marry and are happy to celebrate the milestone with an ice
cream wedding cake and best wishes for the happy couple.”
