Making a commitment: Cincinnati woman is in the business of uniting couples, gay or not

CINCINNATI - You may have read our Saturday "Weddings & Celebrations" column. In the course of telling the love stories of local couples, WCPO Contributor Sian Bitner Kearney learned about a local woman who plans and presides over commitment ceremonies for gay and lesbian couples.

Even before the tide of public opinion about marriage equality began to turn in its favor, Gay Glasscott of Tri-State Unique Ceremonies was providing same-sex couples with a way to celebrate and seal their commitment.

“I believe every couple--two men, two women or a man and a woman--should have the ceremony they had envisioned and dreamed about and it should be individualized to fit their values, personalities, philosophies, life goals, etcetera,” she said.

A number of polls indicate about 54 to 56 percent of Americans favor laws allowing gays and lesbians to legally marry.

Become a WCPO Insider to learn more about Glasscott and meet a same-sex  couple who tied the knot with her help. Plus, read about the promise Glasscott is making for the day same-sex marriage is legalized in Ohio.
