18 Small Businesses Who Support Marriage Equality

    “Not all walks down the aisle are straight.”

    Although Michigan is still one of 13 states in the U.S. where same-sex marriage is banned, nearly a hundred small businesses and their employees came out to the Ultimate LGBT Wedding Expo in Southfield this week to show their support.

    BuzzFeed Life asked a few of them why they and their businesses support marriage equality, and this is what they said:

    1. "Everyone deserves love (and cake)!"

    2. "Because it's logical."

    3. "We believe in equal rights for all citizens of our beautiful world."

    4. "Not all walks down the aisle are straight."

    5. "Love is love. Money is money. It's our life."

    6. "It's really important for us to provide banking services to the whole community, not just a part of it."

    7. "Love blooms in many gardens!"

    8. "Love is tender, knows no gender."

    9. "Because why not?"

    10. "Love is in the air!"

    11. "Because we're diverse."

    12. "Everyone deserves to be with the one they love, regardless of a silly thing like gender <3"

    13. "Love is love."

    14. "Because discrimination is against my religion."

    15. "I think same-sex marriage is a fundamental right."

    16. "Everyone deserves to have their special moment be respected."

    17. "Because Ypsi loves love!!!"

    18. "Love!"
