Congratulations are in order: Husbands Ed Reggi and Scott Emanuel are being honored next month with the Equality Award at the 2010 Human Rights Campaign St. Louis Dinner Gala.

The HRC is the nation's largest group working toward equal rights for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender Americans.

The couple's work on behalf of LGBT equality in our fair city speaks for itself: Emanuel has long been an activist on behalf of LGBT citizens and youth, and Reggi founded Show Me No Hate, an active grassroots coalition.

The pair have been running bus trips to Iowa since last May so local same-sex couples can be married there -- in fact, they're taking a group there tomorrow.

The black-tie gala, No Excuses, takes place on September 25. For tickets, check out www.stlouis.hrc.org. Well done, gentlemen!
