The event will be held Sunday May 4, 2008 from 12:30 - 3:30 pm at the Hilton St. Petersburg Bayfront. Dozens of local wedding vendors are scheduled to participate, who actively support equal rights in marriage. Other highlights include Music, Ceremony Tips, Samples, Fashion and Informative Presentations about the issues concerning equality in marriage and adoption for the GLBTQ community. Admission is free, and all supporters of equality are encouraged to attend.

"The state of Florida has a history of anti-gay marriage and adoption legislation," says Cindy Sproul, co-owner of "So it is important that we show a strong presence in St. Petersburg." Sproul has worked in the GLBTQ community for over twelve years and launched with her partner Marianne Puechl in 2000. To date, the company has produced 18 Expos all across America. Sproul continues, "We all need to work together, the gay and lesbian community as well as our allies, to enact real change in the arena of true equality in Florida and throughout the country."

This first annual event in St. Petersburg will include RainbowWeddingNetwork's new initiative, the Same Love, Same Rights® Mobile Marriage Summit. Meant as a rally and open forum for the public, one of the Summit's main goals is to identify activities that individuals can take part in to create mass change in favor of equal rights in marriage. Those attending the rally will have the opportunity to share their ideas on the issues and learn new ways to get involved, both at the state and national levels. Other Mobile Marriage Summit rallies are scheduled for 2008 in Atlanta, Seattle and New York City.

"In recent years, the gay community in America has become less cohesive," says Marianne Puechl. "And we truly have seen a need to add a political edge to the party atmosphere of our Wedding Expos. The Mobile Marriage Summit is an exciting addition: it will create a buzz at a grassroots, activist-level, and every attendee at the event will have an opportunity to get involved right then, right there. The sister website is an excellent complement to the work we're trying to achieve: " provides all the tools that citizens, nonprofit agencies, and businesses need in order to work marriage equality into the fabric of America."

Attendees will have the chance to mingle with dozens of gay-friendly wedding professionals, as well as those in the travel, gift and home-planning industries such as realtors, lawyers and financial planners. Married & engaged guests will also be invited to add a photograph to the Commitment Photo Album,? an ongoing project to document GLBTQ couples and their families throughout the nation.

Launched in 2000, (RWN) has grown to become the most extensive wedding resource for the gay and lesbian community in the United States. RWN produced its first GLBTQ Wedding Expo in 2003 and released the national Rainbow Wedding Network Magazine in 2006. To date, RWN has produced eighteen different events in eleven states.
