Topeka Hosts Wedding Expo in November for Same-Sex Couples

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — Organizers of a wedding expo geared toward same-sex couples say the November event in Topeka will give businesses a chance to let the gay community know they want their business.  The Kansas Equality Wedding Expo is scheduled for November 22 at the Maner Conference Center, with some of the proceeds from the $5 entrance fee to benefit Topeka Pride.  The Topeka Capital-Journal reports the event will feature vendors who are friendly to same-sex couples.  Visit Topeka president Brett Oetting says the expo will help couples avoid the discomfort of going into a business and finding out the owner doesn't want to serve them.  A similar event took place in February just across the state line in the Westport neighborhood of Kansas City, Missouri.
