Liverpool FC history was made as Colorado couple Sarah McKnight and Christina Walls were the first pair to have a civil partnership ceremony at Anfield.
Longtime fans of the Reds and members of the team’s supporters group in Colorado, McKnight and Walls flew to the United Kingdom for their dream destination wedding, complete with a stadium tour.
Liverpool’s social inclusion officer Rishi Jain (how cool is it for a team to have a “social inclusion officer?) said:
It’s a big step for the club. We have always been proud of the work we do regarding inclusion and diversity, and to have the first civil partnership with such a lovely couple is really good.
This is not the first LGBT first for Liverpool, also the first EPL club to participate in UK Pride. You can check out all of their pictures of the ceremony at the club’s website.
