Supporters are planning a party to celebrate same-sex marriage becoming law in Washington.

D.C. lawmakers passed a bill allowing the marriages in December, but because the city is federally controlled, it didn’t go into effect immediately. Tuesday is the last day of a 30-day review period during which the law could be rejected by Congress.

D.C.’s representative in Congress, Delegate Eleanor Holmes Norton, is planning a party Tuesday evening at her office in the Rayburn House Office Building. Mayor Adrian M. Fenty and D.C. Council Chairman Vincent C. Gray are among the invited guests.

The Gay Men’s Chorus of Washington has been invited to perform.

Wednesday will be the first day same-sex couples can apply for a license to wed.
