TV personality Ross Mathews will officiate his first same-sex wedding on Saturday — on a float in the middle of Washington, D.C.’s LGBT Capital Pride parade.
“I'm so excited I can’t even tell you,” Mathews says.
Of course, he tells us.
“Marriott International is doing something so cool,” Mathews says. “We are partnering together for the #LoveTravels [campaign], which encourages travelers to explore their personal passion and celebrate their unique stories.”
Never miss a local story.
At Saturday’s pride parade in Washington, Mathews — who filled out forms online to become an official officiant — will marry “a fabulous couple named Sean [Franklin] and George [Carrancho] from Texas.”
“They've been together 10 years,” Mathews says. “Texas is one of the 13 states remaining in the nation that doesn’t have marriage equality. Since they can’t get married in their state, Marriott International and I are partnering together to marry Sean and George on a Marriott International float in the middle of Capital Pride with thousands of people around. We’re going to do it while we march through the streets of D.C., while the Supreme Court is making its decision.”
Mathews just finished judging Season 7 of RuPaul’s Drag Race. “I’m doing all the red carpets on E! and my podcast, Straight Talk With Ross Mathews. ... That’s Mathews with one T.”
