Frontiers, which ran into financial problems and had to be sold, was not an easy decision for Stern. However, he is carrying on the legacy by continuing the Rainbow Galleria. “The Lesbian & Gay Wedding Expo was the final event I created prior to selling Frontiers, ” Stern told Wehoville. In 2013, it was the largest conference dedicated to same-sex wedding and the vendor space was sold out and attended by over 1, 400 people. Stern added, “When I created that event in 2013, gay marriage was legal in 14 states. As of today, that number is 36 states and counting.
Those who wish to attend can pre register online, and a few free tickets will be given out to those who answer “David” to how did you find us? question on registration.
