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.

Yes, I’m from Las Vegas. But I’d like to clarify a few things: I don’t live in a hotel and I’m not a showgirl. I put my pasties on one nipple at a time, just like everyone else. I’m a regular girl who plunges off the side of ridiculously tall Las Vegas landmarks and writes about it for a living. I also ride roller coasters, hang at the spa, shoot holes in zombies and take art lessons from bottlenose dolphins. You know, normal stuff. My career as a journalist and copywriter has led me out of Vegas and around the world, but the 24/7 normality of Las Vegas sucks me back in every time. Am I oblivious to the plethora of slot machines everywhere I go? Sure. But that’s because I’m distracted by all the pretty lights. Follow me on Google+ and Twitter.
