LGBTQ+ Weddings in New York City
Let’s dive into the topic of LGBTQ+, inclusive weddings. Gay marriage has been legal in the state of New York since June 24, 2011, allowing same-sex couples to get legally married with the same process as any other heterosexual couple. The City Clerk declares itself open to diversity and looks forward to welcoming all couples wanting to tie the knot in the big city. There are no extra steps, no judging during the process of obtaining the marriage license, and of course, no judgment during your ceremony. All you and your spouse need to do is get an appointment to get a Marriage License, and go to the City Clerk at the date and time you have picked. You both need any sort of picture ID, driver’s license or passport, and a copy of divorce papers if you were previously married. Beforehand, you can fill out this application at home, to save time and make your appointment shorter and easier.
