This is an exciting week as we get closer to the passing and acceptance of Same Sex Marriage in NY. It just thrills me to witness and be a part of it. My fiancee and I had the pleasure of attending Brooklyn Pride last Saturday Evening. We stood on the sidewalk with hundreds of others hooting and hollering at the passing floats and marchers. The most beautiful part of it all to me was the heterosexual families with small children joining in the celebration. I can't tell you how happy it made me see small children enjoying the love and the beauty of all people.

As gay couples start to gain not only the legal rights but the social graces as well, there are many heterosexual traditions that are being looked at as we forge this new standard for ourselves.

It's all pretty open territory and it will be exciting to see how it all evolves.
But I honestly have to say- and you may think me sentimental- but there are a few wedding websites tailored to gay couples, and when I run through the photographs of couples dressing, sharing moments with family, loving each other, and all that beautiful love that surrounds them.... well it has brought me to tears many times.

Though I certainly respect everyone's right to their opinion on the subject, I just hope that the love and sweetness that transpires between all couples, who stand before friends and family to proclaim devotion and enduring love, touches everyone in the way that it should.
We are all blessed by the experience of such love and I have been honored to be a part of so many of them.
