Sirens magazine did a wedding issue, and asked me to write something aboutmarriage equality:
On a more personal note, not a single one of San Francisco’s or Massachusetts’ weddings marred my wedded bliss one bit. I was more upset by those using my marriage as an excuse to deny others their right to equal protection under the law.
San Francisco’s weddings made me remember my own wedding day, and the wedding days of some dear friends: thrown petals, good wishes, sufficient champagne, a bridesmaid snogging one of the groomsmen. They made me happier to be married, the joy of those couples reflected onto the rest of us, showing us how lucky we were to witness that kind of love.
Which is a roundabout way of giving my belated congratulations to the beautiful women ofWe Do Too, whose wedding photos made me cry and laugh and, at a time when there’s so much dark and so much crazy, remember that the reason we’re not doomed is that people will always be brave, whatever else is going on.
