Say Yes - Wedding and More promotes the creation of an innovative formula, both social and
entrepreneurial, for the organization of Wedding Planning events dedicated to the LGBTQI target *.
Because of the social change underway and following the approval of the Italian law on Civil
Unions, we believe that there is a new target that deserves an investment of energy, time and
resources. The activity focuses on the entire creative and organizational process, taking care of
every detail of the marriage event of LGBTQI couples*, offering additional services.
Not only wedding: Say Yes also organizes parties, ceremonies, Hen parties, Stag/Bachelor parties
and much more!
Giovanna and her sister Michela are LGBTQI* activist since 2013. Since the institution of the Civil
Unions came into force in the Italian legal system, she has seen the possibility of concretizing her
dream: to fight for people's civil rights and to bring a positive change in society and in the life of
Thus, thanks to a regional grant from Apulia Region ("Pin â€“ Pugliesi innovative"), they had the
opportunity to present an innovative project in the Salento area and throughout the South of Italy in

"The Brides" is a project by "Soul & Pepper" and QBe Project, in collaboration with "LeA-
Liberamente E Apertamente". A video to tell the love story between two young women after the
approval of the Civil Unions under the Italian Law. The moment of the ¨I do¨ and the love story
between two brides. A wonderful couple, a magical place, a splendid day.
The idea of YOURS Network: From YOUth Responsibility to Self-employability is aimed at not just at developing youth’s social skills to appreciate the community, the environment and their participation in social and political processes, but also to create a network of social responsible organizations that through the training of trainers will have the opportunity to grow into social enterprises as well. The project on one hand wants to inspire youth to build up their network and be engaged in activities such as organizing campaigns around certain societal issues. But on other hand, this project will bring innovative practices on surface, allowing participants to develop self-employability skills and to get closer to the mind-set behind social enterprise.
