Lot's Wife Trans & Queer Chaplaincy hosted pop-up elopements outside of City Hall in St. Louis from October 12th to the 15th as joy as resistance against the Supreme Court nomination hearings. Pastor Tori Jameson organized the event and in the past 3 days approximately 11 couples have been married or renewed their vows. “Celebrating love is really powerful… it’s a different way of protesting,” Jameson said. Numerous volunteers came each day to help with officiating, photographing, and celebrating the ceremonies. The event is open to anyone and is free of cost.
Lot's Wife Trans & Queer Chaplaincy is a non-profit organization that serves Trans-expansive and Queer people and provides support and services, such as activism and public witness, spiritual care, memorials and blessings, end of life planning and preaching. This is the organizations first time hosting this event. In total there have been 9 weddings and 2 vow renewals.
