Loving Day

I have just learned of something wonderful I absolutely had to share. On July 10, Lincoln Center in NYC is hosting a (Re)Wedding for anyone whose wedding plans were derailed by Covid. The event has been aptly scheduled in honor of “Loving Day,” the anniversary of the Supreme Court decision that legalized interracial marriage. While I’m somewhat perplexed as to why it’s being held in July rather than on June 12, which is the typically-observed anniversary of the Loving v. Virginia case resolution, it’s still a lovely, slightly heartbreaking idea! Whoever thought this up deserves many, many blessings.

Hooray for love! XOXOXO

In the matter of Obergefell v. Hodges

gayHere’s the post I had all ready to go:

“The Supreme Court has upheld states’ right to ban same-sex marriage and to not recognize legal same-sex marriages performed in other jurisdictions. I’m not a Constitutional scholar, and, unlike half the internet, I’m not going to pretend I am. Of course, I’m terribly disappointed, but I kind of had a feeling that this wasn’t our year.

That said, it’s still one of my favorite weekends of the year, and I’m not going to let slow-moving progress spoil it. So here are the other Supremes with something to keep in mind.”

HAPPILY, I didn’t need it after all!!!!!!  PARTY TIME!!!!
