Freedom to Marry: For Me, For All

I hope no one will mind me posting this here, as it sort of tangentially has something to do with FYM:


It went down this weekend in NYC, and my fiance Andrew and I could not be happier. We plan to make a donation to Freedom to Marry, a group working to extend marriage to same-sex couples, in celebration of this.

Knowing this, has anyone done anything similar for special occasions? I know I made some donations to a group called Alternative Gifts for people for Christmas--a certain amount of money sends a box of medical supplies to Africa or feeds a homeless family for a day, that kind of thing.

And if y'all don't mind, here are some piccies...


and you hunger for the time
time to heal, desire, time

Join Amnesty.

Congratulations! I'm really happy for you.

I also think it's a lovely idea to make a donation to charity in celebration. At Christmas, a group of friends and I donate money to a charity we choose together, instead of purchasing presents for each other. I guess that's sort of the same idea.

Congratulations again!

“Some scientists claim that hydrogen, because it is so plentiful, is the basic building block of the universe. I dispute that. I say there is more stupidity than hydrogen, and that is the basic building block of the universe.”

Neither can I. But anywho, yeah, congratulations! . I personally don't know of any groups like the one you're donating to, but that's cool that there's some out there. .

Anywho, so yeah, congrats again. Hope you have a fabulous wedding!
