Married on Nov 11

LincLinc Community InstigatorDetroit Moderator

When @Brian and I started this site in 2004 while a college student in my home state of Pennsylvania, I hadn't yet even acknowledged I am gay. This past Saturday I was married to my boyfriend of more than five years, Aaron. The reading was from Obergefell v. Hodges which got a standing ovation from 150 of our friends and family here in Detroit. What a journey it's been. :chuffed:

    I honestly couldn't be happier for you - !

    I don't know if you are aware of the significance of this day - 11th November - but here in the UK (and in Europe) it's Armistice Day. A day when all hostilities ended and World Peace reigned once more (albeit briefly).
    I can't think of a better celebration than yours.

    So many phonies and belligerents in the world today. Refreshing to see unconventional displays of love and affection.

    So proud of you!

    Me too. I expect we'll be a ways into 2018 before the photographer finishes editing them all. :) There are a few kicking around Facebook, but I don't really wanna collect a bunch of random shots when I know the good ones will be along.

    We delayed that a bit until the dead of winter, but we are headed somewhere warm. :)
