Video: Uber celebrates Pride by marrying 8 gay and straight couples

Nick Duffy July 4, 2014

Transport firm Uber has celebrated the anniversary of marriage equality in California by providing free weddings to eight couples, gay and straight.

The company – that provides minicab services in San Francisco – held the special ‘UberWedding’ event for Pride last weekend.

Some might say it’s a PR stunt, but we couldn’t possibly comment.

They wrote: “We’re thankful to be based in San Francisco, a city that recognizes love doesn’t have to look any certain way.

“In honour of Pride week, we’re celebrating the inclusive idea that love is love with something that lasts a lifetime.

“This Saturday, weddings are on demand. Whether you and your partner have considered tying the knot for years or are just feeling a spark of spontaneity — we’re here to help start you on your new adventure.”

They added: “On Saturday, June 28, eight different couples said ‘I do’ with Uber. The day was full of touching moments we won’t soon forget — and we’d like to share just a few of those moments with you.”

The US Supreme Court struck down Proposition 8, California’s ban on same-sex marriages, last summer.

A bill that would make marriage terminology in the state gender neutral passed through the State Senate in May.
