RICHMOND, Va. — Equality Virginia will commemorate the legalization of same-sex marriage in the commonwealth at its annual dinner that will take place at the Greater Richmond Convention Center on April 18.
The dinner will take place slightly more than six months after gays and lesbians began to legally exchange vows in Virginia.
Tim Bostic and Tony London of Norfolk and Carol Schall and Mary Townley of Chesterfield, who are among the same-sex couples who challenged Virginia’s constitutional amendment that defines marriage as between a man and a woman, are among those who are expected to attend the Equality Virginia Commonwealth Dinner.
“This is the time to recognize the work that so many Virginians have put into this fight for decades, some of whom never got to see this day,” said Equality Virginia Executive Director James Parrish in a press release. “We will honor everybody’s hard work and celebrate this important time in history by throwing one big wedding reception for Virginia.”
