As the battle for marriage equality continues to gain traction in South Florida's courts, gay and lesbian couples, as well as the wedding industry are preparing for the big day. Bobby Kyser, a well-known event planner as the owner of Panache Style, is well ahead of the curve in planning for Florida's untapped same-sex wedding industry by organizing the first-ever Gay Nuptials, a gay-friendly wedding expo to showcase top-notch caterers, venues, florists and more.

Gay Nuptials wedding showcase, which will be held on Sunday, August 17 from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. at Hagen Park Community Center (2020 Wilton Drive, Wilton Manors, Florida 33305), will feature an impressive roster of nearly 50 gay-friendly vendors. The City of Wilton Manors was named the "Second Gayest City" in the United States by the US Census Bureau, and Fort Lauderdale continues to be one of the top gay travel destinations in the world. With a large percentage of the population identifying as gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender, the gayborhood could also soon become a same-sex wedding destination for tourists.

Tickets for Gay Nuptials are $20 and can be ordered online at www.mygaywedding.org or by calling Panache Style at 954-356-9377. All proceeds from ticket sales will be donated to The Pride Center at Equality Park, which provides a welcoming, safe space for the LGBTQ community.
