July 13: Tarrant County Stonewall Democrats to celebrate marriage equality

With Tarrant County being one of the first counties in the state to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples, the Tarrant County Stonewall Democrats have reason to celebrate. That’s why the LGBT Democratic club hosts a party on Monday, July 13, at 7 p.m. at lesbian-owned Tommy’s Hamburgers, 2455 Forest Park Blvd. in Fort Worth to celebrate the U.S. Supreme Court’s marriage equality decision. The group will honor all married couples. Democrat and LGBT ally Justice of the Peace Sergio de Leon will officiate marriages for couples with marriage licenses that have been waiting for their big moment. And it being Tommy’s, there will be burgers and beer, too.

For more information e-mail Info@tarrantstonewall.org. Photo: Justice of the Peace Sergio de Leon
