May I Present…

Personal Bits, Queer stuff, Toronto

…Mister and Mister Daniel and Mark (John?)!

What a lovely ceremony! What a lovely couple! Not a hint of politics or religion and several poiniant quotes from ee cummings to get the heartstrings tugged (yes, I did cry, thankyouverymuch, much to my sister and Sharkboy’s delight). It went off without any screaming ex-boyfriends banging on the windows, yelling “Mrs Bouvier! Mrs Bouvier!!”

Best comment, pre-wedding: “Hey Dan, when you do this again, you need to get a bigger venue.”

Thanks to Mark’s friends and bits of my family, who made the effort to come and get stuck in this crappy weather. Thanks to Mum and Da for your help and words at the party.

Mark, take care of my brother! Thirty years ago he marched (and roller skated in a Habit) through Toronto to get to where you two are today and displayed a tenacity that I wish I had. I am truly greatfull for all the work he’s done and for his stubborn, unrelenting spirit. You are his perfect compliment.

I am proud to call you brother.

I’ve removed the pictures for spacing issues but would be glad to email any to anyone who cares.
