OutBid Celebrates First Anniversary of Marriage Equality

Posted By on Wed, Jun 22, 2016 at 12:10 PM

Marriage equality became the law of the land on June 26, 2015 after the momentous Obergefell v. Hodges U.S. Supreme Court decision. The Memphis Gay & Lesbian Community Center (MGLCC) will commemorate the first anniversary of marriage equality in its annual Outbid auction.

Themed “Paper & Pansies: A Celebration of the First Anniversary of Marriage Equality," the auction to benefit MGLCC will take place on Saturday, June 25th at the Clark Opera Memphis Center at 6:30 p.m.

Paper is the traditional first anniversary gift, symbolizing the strength that comes from the interlaced connection of the paper's individual threads. And an alternate tradition recommends pansies, which symbolize thought or remembrance.

The auction event will also feature live music and comedy, as well as food and libations. Tickets are $50 for a single, $90 for a double, and $350 for a table of eight. To purchase tickets, go here.
