By: Ross von Metzke

Lance Bass, Skyy Vodka, and Freedom to Marry have set a lofty goal.

Today, on Monday, June 16, they’re trying to set the Guinness World Record for the largest arms-linked toast to raise awareness for marriage equality.

According to organizers, #ToastToMarriage is a social media campaign aimed at raising funds and awareness for marriage equality in states where gay and lesbian couples are not able to legally marry.

Events are being held today in Atlanta, Fort Lauderdale, Philadelphia, Columbus, Chicago, New Orleans, Houston, Phoenix, San Diego, Los Angeles and San Francisco. Photos from the events will be posted at and on Instagram using the handle @toasttomarriage and the hashtag #ToastToMarriage.

At #ToastToMarriage events, photographers will take portraits of couples toasting to marriage equality.

Bass got engaged to his boyfriend Michael Turchin earlier this year.
