All 90 lbs. of my cousin Lisa is willing to travel across the country to New York, a state where her union to Therese, her partner of 15 years, will be acknowledged. But what about the people who don't have the means make their last dying wish -- a legally recognized wedding -- come true?
This week I talked with producer Josh Rosenzweig and director Keren Aronoff about their new documentary, Pride & Groom, which commemorates the first anniversary of marriage equality in the state of New York and comprises four one-hour specials.
The primary elections for state legislature turned into a referendum, of sorts, on same-sex marriage. I'm sorry to say that gay rights had a bad day.
July 24 marks the one year anniversary of my marriage. My gay marriage. It's crazy to think that it's already been a year since the historic day when my husband and I, and over 800 other LGBT couples said, "I do" here in the State of New York.
Much to my surprise, I can no longer say that I don't want to get married. I always thought that not having to get married was one of the benefits of being gay. I have never imagined living fully within the fabric of my society. The rebel in me resists giving up my outlaw status.
