Love is love
Equal weddings are an experience that cannot be explained in words. The energy you feel is
beautiful and very special. As professionals in events, we must be trained in the subject to
create an adequate and significant production for the community. Therefore, in this blog,
we’ll talk about the key points to consider for an equal marriage wedding.
What does LGBTQ+ mean?
The LGBTQ acronym is known worldwide, but its history is a topic that we have to
continue creating a conversation about it since it’s not only interesting but also very important
on a cultural level.
In the 50s and 60s, the term “homosexual” or “gay” was the most common ways to refer
to groups of people who did not fit into the heterosexual standards well regarded by society
at that time. However, other people did not exactly identify with these tags and this is how,
until the 90s, it finally evolved, this reference changed to the initials of each gender identity
or sexual preference.
L – Lesbian
G – Gay
B – Bisexual
T – Transgender
Q – Queer
LGBTQ was the first official term used by activist organizations to refer to all sexual
identities and the abbreviation has, to this day, increasingly developed into a more inclusive
term. For example, the letter I, A, and the + were added to also make community members
- Intersex: People born with some masculine and other feminine biological characteristics, which can cause difficulty in defining a certain sex. This isn’t a medical problem.
- Asexual: People who do not experience sexual attraction at all. It’s not a free choice, it’s simply part of the individual.
As the term LGBTQIA+ has been supplemented over the years, there is a high probability
that these acronyms will continue to be changing according to the evolution of genders and
sexuality in the future, and when that happens, we’ll continue to train our team and provide
the best service to our community.

the Box Truss decorated with nature and beautiful flowers is the ideal option.

calm environment, the lighting in purple tones will enchant you.
