Arizona Couples Competing in ACLU's "My Big Gay Illegal Wedding" Contest

Categories: The Gays

Fifteen Arizona couples are competing in a contest hosted by the American Civil Liberties Union, in which couples can win money for a wedding in a state that recognizes gay marriage.

The couples have to be from a state that doesn't recognize same-sex marriages to participate in the "My Big Gay Illegal Wedding" contest, and about 200 couples from across the country have entered.

Out of the 15 Arizona couples, the hipster couple, Rafael and Humberto, have by far the most votes.

According to their profile, one of them (it doesn't say who) was born in Arizona, while the other was born in Mexico and brought to the United States when he was just 3, and is working thanks to the Obama Administration's deferred-action program.

If they won one of the $5,000 prizes, they want to have a Roaring Twenties-themed wedding near the ocean in California.

How stupid -- just a bunch of drama queens. And you talk about Arpaio being full of drama.  Hosting something like "illegal and dumb" would be even better. Will Hendley and Lemons be there together?

@robert_graham  maybe they will, maybe they wont,  but i figured with all the web sites you host that cater to that lifestyle.............i thought you would be being nice to them in hopes they will mention your sites if they do go.  dont get huffy and offend the guys who can give you free advertising Robert, that isnt good business sense (but then again, why expect you to have business sense when you evidently lack COMMON SENSE)
