APW Happy Hour That's a wrap for APW Pride Week! (BOO.) by Meg Keene HI APW! It’s… been one of those weeks. Thank god there has been Pride week on APW to get me through, because damn. For anyone else, or just me? I keep reminding myself that NEXT week is Fourth of July, and this week is almost over… and now it’s happy hour. DRINK? I mean, open thread? XO, MEG Highlights of APW This Week Why we still need Pride. A Brooklyn wedding with a killer dance party. Wedding style for the masculine of center and the femme partners who love them. When you can’t put “Got gay married before it was cool” on your resume. The unique challenges that come with planning your (gay) wedding. Waiting for the stork… or perhaps the FedEx truck. Legally wed. A stunning hexagon wedding backdrop that is easy and affordable? Just for you. Link Roundup Pride Links! On legal “re-marriage,” and Jewish liturgy. Tending the roots of a revolution. The masculine mystique. Laverne Cox: “I believe in the creatives. When the creatives begin to do it, the casting directors will come along.” The history of an early American same-sex marriage. Around the Web Are wealthy, educated women bored with white weddings? “Being a bridesmaid is driving me to the brink.” The legal issues around Boulder, Colorado starting to issue marriage licenses. Hey! We were in Time/Money magazine. Twice! Oh make that three times, as of an hour ago! The new teaser trailer and posters for Mockingjay—Part 1 are seriously creepy, and seriously great.
