Jonathan Van Ness to marry same-sex couple to kick off Seattle Pride

The Queer Eye star joined forces with Elysian Brewing for the new contest

By Steve Brown

Jonathan Van Ness is set to marry a same-sex couple to kick off Seattle Pride.

The Queer Eye and former Attitude cover star joined forces with Elysian Brewing and is holding a contest for a same-sex couple looking to tie the knot by the grooming guru with the lucky couple marrying at the brewery’s Cap Hill Pub at the start of June.

He told Page Six: “I’m so excited to team up with Elysian Brewing during Seattle Pride to share the message that all people should be free and proud to express themselves as they are.

“I can’t wait for June!”

In the promo video, the hair guru also referenced the controversial Colorado bakery who refused to bake a cake for a same-sex couple last year.

“Last year, the Supreme Court ruled in favour of a cake shop owner who wouldn’t bake a wedding cake for a same-sex couple,” he continued.

“Thankfully, there are so many businesses that do support the LGBTQ community, because it shouldn’t matter who you are, or who you love.”
