The Pop-Up Wedding Chapel at The Cosmopolitan is blazing trails this week by working alongside the Gay and Lesbian Community Center of Southern Nevada in support of marriage equality.

Pop goes the stigma.

For three hours starting at 4 p.m. on Thursday, May 2, several couples — including a number of same-sex couples — will say their “I Do’s” during a commitment ceremony every 5 minutes in the temporary chapel space. The ceremonies are not legally binding, but are meant to represent a cultural change in attitudes about same-sex marriage.

Additionally, The Cosmopolitan’s Vice President of People, Daniel Espino, is expected to announce a donation in support of  the Gay and Lesbian Community Center.

The Pop-Up Wedding Chapel is open Sunday – Thursday, 3 – 11 p.m. and Friday – Saturday, 3 p.m. – 2 a.m. For more information, call (702) 698-7640.
