So this week, we’ve alluded to a secret project we were working on at Yay New York. And to wrap up the week, I’m honored to present it to you. This is the trailer for the documentary short Eric Brown of the The Media Playground is working on about marriage equality, the party we threw, and the community you guys are.
Because the point of the event wasn’t just to get two couples married, or to get 150 people together in a room and have a party. The point was to take what happened in that room and spread the message. The message that, as Ang put it to me earlier this week, “Love is love, and don’t be a dick.” Or, more eloquently if less succinctly, there is nothing more beautiful than two people loving each other and the world honoring that love.
So please, share this video. Put it on your blog. Link to it on Twitter. Put it on Facebook. Share the message with people who aren’t part of this community, or who aren’t sure how they feel about marriage equality yet. And I’ll let you know when the full documentary short is done. Of course.
APW’s LAMBDA Legal drive is going to be open for the next two weeks, as I know some of you want some time to plan on slightly more significant gifts. A huge thank you to the couples who trusted us with their weddings, the sponsors and volunteers who gave their talents and heart, and all of you for following along, lifting us up, and allowing this to happen.
And don’t worry, Ask Team Practical will be back next week. Obviously.
