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