Happy Sunday Funday, cronut holes! I ordered a custom plate for my car yesterday that reads simply “V BAD GRL.” That’s all. Here’s some good gay news for us to mull over while I try to figure out which DMV they’ll get sent to!
Welcome to the World’s Largest Lesbian Wedding
“There was such joy and love — it was a beautiful event,” Mitnick says, noting that it attracted hundreds of onlookers who spilled into the surrounding street and borrowed milk crates from the nearby deli on which to stand for a better view. Bride Pride’s participants ranged in age from 25 to 72, Mitnick adds, and traveled from 15 states including Michigan, Florida, Tennessee, and California.
The day’s officiant was comedian Kate Clinton, a long-beloved figure in the lesbian community, who kept everyone laughing with lines like, “You are a basket of adorables!” and “We are only one menstrual cycle away from this election cycle being over!” But Clinton inspired tears, too, by declaring, “I am here because I believe in the miracle of two women exchanging vows of marriage,” and by having participants recite “I will” to moving vows, including, “Will you love and respect her?” and “Will you promise to trust each other — to be flexible, generous, courageous, and committed to making your relationship flourish together?”
Even More Election News You Can Use (to Restore Your Faith in Humanity)
+ Miley Cyrus is knocking on doors for Hillary, which brings me back to my original question: Why isn’t Miley Cyrus my best friend?
“Hello? How are you?! I’m Miley,” Cyrus said after knocking on the George Mason University dorm room door of Jake Zartman, 18, a freshman from Ohio. The 23-year-old pop star, now a coach on “The Voice,” was dressed in a glittery red and silver dress with a blue furry jacket, a blue bow tie covering her chest and a pink head band. The young man was practically quaking.
“I’m here supporting Hillary. Are you going to vote?” asked Cyrus.
“You’ll be proud to know I’ve already voted for Hillary,” Zartman told her.
“Yeah!” she yelped.
“Obviously,” Zartman said.
And so it went on Saturday afternoon at George Mason in the swing state of Virginia, where a lucky number of students in the Piedmont dorm got to wait in their pizza box-laden rooms waiting for Cyrus to enter and chat them up, even pose for selfies on their junky twin beds. They were smiling and sticking their tongues out in trademark Cyrus style.
