Hi, I'm Ric Simmons, and I'm an advocate for inclusive awareness training and education in the wedding and event industry for LGBTQIA2S+ couples.

In 2015, my life pivoted to advocating for inclusive awareness, when my husband and I were denied wedding services, simply because, of who we are, a gay couple.

As the President and Founder of The Inclusive Wedding Alliance, I encourage training and education on @inclusiveweddingallies
‍As the Publisher of INCLUSIVE, the magazine. I encourage couples to share their love stories for other couples to grow and identify. @inclusivethemagazine
