SALT LAKE CITY — Mar 6, 2016, 5:13 PM ET

Jason Langlois and Will Bladh are in the early stages of making plans for their summer 2017 wedding, and they don't want their excitement pierced by the pain of being rejected by a venue, florist and photographer who have a legal right in Utah to refuse to serve a gay couple.

That's why they joined several hundred people Sunday at a gay and lesbian wedding expo in Salt Lake City aimed at connecting couples with businesses who want to make it known they're open to doing same-sex weddings.

A new national survey ranks Salt Lake City's population of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender adults as seventh highest among the top 50 U.S. metropolitan areas — a finding that may surprise only those who live outside the Beehive State.

"We've long known that Salt Lake City has a high LGBT population," Troy Williams, executive director of Equality Utah, said. "But when I meet people elsewhere and they find out I'm from Salt Lake City, they are always so concerned and say, 'Your job must be so hard.'

"They don't realize what a gay-affirming and gay-friendly city Salt Lake has become."
