My Weekend Wedding

I am getting married tomorrow. Yes, married. Yes, tomorrow. Yes, really. I have found the woman who makes every day feel whole. And I am blissfully, totally, unendingly happy that we have agreed to be each other’s forever. I am also grateful and proud that we are able to declare our love for each other and have it recognized by our city, state and federal government – at least for now.

Being in love in the age of Trump feels like, in itself, an act of rebellion. For marginalized groups, joy is resistance. We will resist the hatred. We will resist the bigotry. We will resist the corruption. We will resist the cruelty.

I don’t know what the days ahead and the rest of this administration will mean for our marriage. But I know that with her I can face anything. Holding each other’s hand we will shine light into the dark places and offer our other hands to those who need it. Thank you, in advance, for your well wishes. And, as always, thank you for reading. Happy wedding weekend, all. I am getting married tomorrow.

Yes, Yes, Yes! Do it because we CAN. After all those years when we could not, now we can.
Ok, it is just a piece of paper, not proof of love, etc.
Being a legally recognized Spouse really feels good. Oh yeah---that love part is super, too,
Mazel Tov, baby.

My Beloved,
I cannot wait to marry you tomorrow. You have always amazed me with how beautifully you are able to describe your thoughts and feelings on this blog, to express what so many of us truly feel. I continue to be a loving and adoring DS follower.

But I am the lucky one who sees what a kind, intelligent, HILARIOUS and beautiful woman you are in real life. And to all of her “kittens”, she really is an amazingly kind person.

It is indescribable to look over each morning, and with sheer joy, realize you aren’t just a tantalizing dream, you are my beautiful reality. My love, my heart, lets hold hands and laugh our way through this life together. And collect SO MANY fur babies along the way:)
Forever Yours,
M

Oh, DS, I am so, so, so happy for you. I've become an inconsistent reader over the years (because I'm not the college student I once was, but a full grown lady with too much to do now), but have remained one, nonetheless. Your blog has traveled with me through a truly bizarre portion of my life, and I'm so glad to be able to share this bit of the real world with you. Love is rebellion, and I'm ecstatic that you've found yours.

Wishing you all the best, always,
Norma Desmond

I hope a busker sings one of your favorite songs when he sees the newlyweds. It definitely would happen where I live, I hope it happens over there as well.

Massive congratulations!

I've been reading this blog for donkeys years, from back in the day when it was a guilty secret and window to be hidden, to today when I'm sonfar out of the closet it's a tiny wee speck in the distance - and I don't have to rely on popular culture lesbian content because my life has its very own.

In all that time I've loved the fun, the righteous rage, the tank tops dear god the tank tops, the sports, the sgalgg specials, and intros to most if not all of my all time wlw cultural highpoints.

It's never before occured to me to comment, but seeing this pop up I had a weirdly familial Aw DS is getting married wave of happiness, and so felt moved to say thank you for all you've done for me through this blog, and I wish you every joy and happiness in your lives together.
