REGISTRATION IS CLOSED
There are also other ways to get involved! Are you legally married out-of-state, but call Virginia home? If so, sign up on our Marriage Registry and send us a photo of your wedding for Equality Virginia’s Wedding Album!
It’s easy to help! Invite your friends, fire-up the grill, and party for equality!
Why Host a CookOUT?
Virginia has never been closer to marriage equality. The Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals is scheduled to hear oral arguments for Bostic v. Schaefer on May 13. Together, through sharing our stories and photos of CookOUTs, we can show support for the couples in this case – and many others across the state.
When you host a CookOUT, you will bring people together and will help put a face on this important issue – and that goes a long way in changing hearts and minds. We will be collecting personal stories from our CookOUT hosts to share online and with media outlets across the state. All it takes is a few friends and one weekend afternoon to raise awareness for equality.
After registering, you will receive a toolkit with three easy steps to plan your event. We’ve taken to Pinterest to help you with menu ideas to get you started.
