Getting Married...again


To the same BL, just this time it's going to be legal. The first time it was at Congregation Beth Simchat Torah-the only and the biggest glbt synagogue in NYC. The rabbi wouldn't marry us as I'm not Jewish, so we had to find our own rabbi, Ellen Lippman.

In 1972 when I came to NYC from Ohio, homosexuality was still a mental illness. Who knew that a short 36 years later I would be able to legally marry my beloved of 17 years (even if I have to leave the country to do it,)

Anyone live in Toronto that can be witness for us (this means you Revgals!) It's going to be 1:00 on May 26th.

This time, the city of Toronto is delighted to marry us and it will be legal and recognized by both my (NY State) and the BL's employers. It'll be Mrs & Mrs. and I'm so excited!
