Mayor R.T. Rybak is making a stand in Minnesota becoming the “gay marriage destination” for the middle of the country. Since gay marriage was legalized on August 1st, Rybak has been urging couples to come to the “City of Lakes” to tie the knot. Throughout the past month he has been urging Chicago couples to “come north to exchange vows” and his next target is Colorado and Wisconsin.
“An analysis by The Associated Press found that at least 1,640 same-sex couples have applied for marriage licenses in Minnesota already.” A few couples have crossed the border so far from Fargo, N.D., and Superior, W.I. Rybak has been a long time supporter of gay marriage as he showed on August 1st when he conducted 46 same-sex weddings. Will Minnesota become “The Destination” for same sex marriage? Mayor Rybak hopes so!
