Brand g Vacations is pleased to announce that Evan Wolfson, Founder and President of Freedom to Marry, will join us as a featured speaker on our Burgundy and Provence cruise this August. Freedom to Marry is the campaign to win marriage throughout the United States and Evan is the civil rights attorney who is generally considered the architect of the national marriage equality movement.
“What better place to celebrate the progress on gay rights and the freedom to marry than France, the latest country to end the exclusion from marriage?” says Evan. “And what better time than this summer, when we will be marking victories in four countries round the world while teeing up the next wave of work globally and in the US? I can’t wait to make new friends and combine activism and good conversation with the delights of a river cruise through la belle France, courtesy of Brand g Vacations.”
Evan goes on to describe the focus of the discussion he has planned for our cruise. “This year France becomes the 17th country on 5 continents where same-sex couples can share in the freedom to marry — up from zero little more than a decade ago — reflecting the same momentum that we are seeing in the freedom to marry movement in the United States.” Evan will also explain how the Freedom to Marry campaign has made such progress, and what more needs to be done to secure the freedom to marry and full equality in the US while continuing to propel global human rights for all LGBT people.
“There is no one who exemplifies the fight to win gay marriage in the U.S. better than Evan. We are thrilled that he will be joining us” says Brand g Vacations’ Charlie Rounds
