Thanks so much to The Advocate for writing about Louisiana Loves! We can’t wait for this weekend!!
DIG Baton Rouge is the premiere weekly magazine in Baton Rouge and graciously featured Louisiana Loves as the cover story for the 2015 Valentines issue. The story included not only an interview with Louisiana Loves organizers, but also an interview with one of the couples that hoped to be included in the campaign. Read the full cover story for Louisiana Loved in DIG Baton Rouge here.
The Louisiana Loves Campaign was officially launched to the public on February 2, 2015. Within the first few hours, hundreds of people had heard about the campaign, multiple submissions had been received and media sources had taken notice. That same night NBC33’s story about Louisiana Loves led the evening newscast. Check out Talia Samelian’s interview with Capital City Alliance President Kayla Mulford and Equality Louisiana’s Matthew Patterson, here.
The purpose of Louisiana Loves is to highlight real LGBTQ Louisianians who have been denied the freedom to marry the person they love. The campaign will feature 50 selected Louisiana LGBTQ couples through photo shoots, video interviews and a commemorative book to celebrate the day on which marriage equality is achieved in Louisiana.
We are looking for couples from all around the state and from diverse backgrounds and experiences to be a part of this project. The photo shoot will take place in Baton Rouge on March 22, and more details will be announced in the coming weeks.
If you and your partner are interested in being one of the 50 couples in the Louisiana Loves campaign, all you have to do is fill out the interest form!
Please share this link with any of your friends and family who might also be interested. The last day to submit interest forms is March 1, so don’t wait.
Marriage is about committed couples who want to make a lifelong promise to take care of and be responsible for each other. That’s what Louisiana Loves aims to show.
