INDIANAPOLIS (AP) – Two wedding expos set for the Indianapolis area will give same-sex couples the ability to choose businesses that support their right to marry.

The Indianapolis Star reports Indiana’s first same-sex wedding expo will be held April 12 at Indiana Grand Racing & Casino in Shelbyville. The second will be held in May in downtown Indianapolis.

The expos come on the heels of a recent fight over Indiana’s religious objections law, but organizers say planning already was in the works before the issue exploded nationally.

Indy Rainbow Chamber of Commerce Chairman Don Burrus says his organization has received dozens of inquiries from same-sex couples since gay marriage was legalized last year by federal courts.

The wedding industry has started to notice, and more than 30 businesses will be at the April 12 expo.
