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.

Go outside the wedding present box for your registry with these 5 great ideas.
There’s certainly something very magical about this time of year. The icy detailing outside just adds to the wonderland romance for a winter wedding and we have five seasonal favor ideas that your guests are sure to love:
Also doubling as seat assignments, these evergreen tree seedling favors are eco-friendly and symbolize the growing love that you’re celebrating. Store them in miniature burlap sacks (as seen here), Champagne flutes, or wrapped in decorated pots. Available at Nursery Men, with prices ranging from $37 for a pack of 25 to $190 for 100-pack, depending on tree variety.
Nothing is cozier than hot cocoa on a cold night, so give your guests something special to sip on in the comfort of their own home. Simple and inexpensive to DIY, however busy brides and grooms can also purchase them. Available at Half Baked for $8/jar.
If you’ve opted to wed in a winter wonderland, keep guests toasty with mini luxe cashmere hand warmers, filled with reusable heating gel packets, as favors. Available at Restoration Hardware for $10/pair (originally $20).
Take inspiration from Father Winter and give your guests snowflake-shaped soaps as a parting gift. Ranging in a variety of holiday scents such as Peppermint Sticks, Frosted Pinecone, and Alpine Snowdift with non-seasonal scents available as well, they can be custom colorized to match your theme. Available at Etsy for $2/baggie containing two soaps and personalized tag.
For those who are DIY divas, create a customized snow globe for each of your guests using glass jars and tiny trinkets. This easy-to-follow how-to from Well Worn is created using a lidded jar of choice, figurines, anti-rust sealant, clear-drying epoxy, distilled water, dash of glycerin and glitter.
