"I am blown away by the attention to detail and relevance to today (even citing social media presence) that Equally Wed has infused into their LGBTQ+ certification course. It's a compilation of everything that I (as a queer nonbinary wedding vendor) have wanted everyone at the weddings I'm working to understand, and then some, and a diving into history and equality that I didn't even realize I didn't know. Kirsten breaks it down in a kind and non-intimidating way, but also holds tight to her values and anti-discrimination convictions. I'm taking away so much, and feeling ready and hopeful for the future of the wedding industry. This course is not only a resource, but a must for anyone who wants to serve their clients as an ally, safe person, or member of the LGBTQ+ community."
