Couple Using Wedding to Raise Awareness

Brad and T.J.

T.J. and Brad, a couple living in northwest Chicago, are planning to use their wedding this summer to raise awareness about the need for equality for same-sex couples. T.J. and Brad will be getting a wedding license in D.C. and having a wedding ceremony in New York City at the famous Riverside Church, which is dually affiliated with the United Church of Christ and American Baptist Churches USA. Along the way, they plan to stop in several other locations to meet with local civil rights and religious leaders. Here in Chicago, the couple attend Trinity United Church of Christ. For more information, visit their blog, Journey to Riverside.
