As a society, we need to take a step back and learn from our historical past; we must remember the love letters we read as young adults in school that belonged to lovers years ago. We must remember the days when families and couples survived turmoil together and never gave up on the lighter side of love.
Is marriage equality relevant to radical queer politics? Bird Pilatsky challenges the notion that engaging with norms of marriage is regressive and anti-queer.
When I came out at the age of 17, I wasn’t met with love by my parents. I was met mainly by fear, and a little anger. After all, I was coming out in the deep south—South Carolina, to be exact.
A “Fly Away with Us” styled wedding shoot inspired by the lush landscape of the venue and brides in love
Go outside the wedding present box for your registry with these 5 great ideas.
We've been writing about gay and lesbian weddings at Equally Wed Magazine for more than three years, but we have yet to see a man in a wedding dress. It's not that it hasn't been done for fun at a Pride festival or a drag show, but on an elevated level, we've been seeking to illustrate how gorgeous a man can look in a wedding gown. James, a professional model at Let's Pose Studios in Cornwall, England, had a similar dream.
"This shoot was something I wanted to do for some time as I've always dreamed of my own perfect wedding," says James. "Wearing a stunning white dress like this also gave me an idea of how special it can make you feel once the makeup and hair is complete. If I choose to wear a dress on my own day, it would have to be a high-end one by my favorite designer Vera Wang."
What do you think, guy readers? Would you opt for a wedding gown on your wedding day? Butch lesbians certainly wear suits deliciously well, and I think James does a marvelous job of rocking a frock. –Kirsten Ott Palladino

My partner and I have a unique engagement story. We both identify as queer and my partner, Owen, is transgender.
