Queer black Baltimore realness: a drag king and a burlesque performer get married

"Chris is an award-winning drag king and Sydney is a burlesque performer. Needless to say, this means our wedding was very theatrical." The dress code was "not basic," and they saw outfits ranging from sequin cocktail dresses to leprechaun costumes, to drag, to ALF. They walked down the aisle, catwalk-style, to a gay dance club classic, "Din Daa Daa" by George Kranz. Sydney's 35-year old brother was the ring bearer and her 98-year old grandmother made it rain with a Cash Cannon as the "flower girl." Y'all NEED to see this amazing queer black Baltimore spectacle!

A queer femme/transfeminine interfaith feminist celeGAYtion

It was important to both of us to represent both of our faith traditions, and to incorporate our vibrant, polyamorous, queer, trans communities as much as possible. My partner is a bearded, genderqueer, transfeminine person, and it was really important to us to be visible and proud about our relationship because so many people think that people like us can't (or don't deserve) to find love and happiness. Caleb rocked a gorgeous wine-colored wedding dress, while I went with a more traditional white gown, and we did our damndest to show the world that love like this will not be hidden.

Woodland creatures, wings, and magic abound at this faery-themed wedding

Amber and Red had a faery-themed wedding which allowed everyone to dress as woodland creatures or costumes of their choosing. It turned a normal wedding day into something truly magical.

Amber and Red met years ago through friends in San Luis Obispo, CA. Although they have now moved to the Pacific Northwest, San Luis Obispo is still one of their favorite places. They held the wedding there to honor it and share their love of the town. You'll want to see the colors, glitter, and magic of this amazing wedding in California…

Why my spouse's $20 wedding gift made me cry

The morning of our wedding, my fiance and I exchanged our wedding gifts. I gave my spouse-to-be an Apple watch; I received a $20 t-shirt. My eyes got watery when I saw the shirt, and I couldn't help but cry. Fortunately, they were happy tears. For me, this t-shirt meant so much more than a fun shirt to wear on our honeymoon. It represented our shared struggles with gender identity… and that I was marrying the right partner for me.
