Gay marriage is nothing new for me
I found a gem when reviewing old files -- a 20-year-old L.A. Times article about me and my partner titled “Marriage Between Homosexuals is Nothing New for Some in S.F.”
Wow, same-sex marriage wasn’t even new to us way back in 1989. It sure seems like it should be accepted and legally recognized by now!
The article by Jennifer McNulty of Associated Press ran in the Los Angeles Times on March 26, 1989. It describes our 1987 Holy Union ceremony as a lesbian couple at Metropolitan Community Church of San Francisco.
I still agree with what I said in the article: “I don’t think we need the state to tell us our marriage is real.”
Update: The article is available online now at the Los Angeles Times archives:
