Coleen McMahon has always been a dear friend, to me and to Tom, so I was honored when she graciously allowed me to use her song, “Beautiful Boy,” in my YouTube video and in #BRIDEGROOM. This song is immensely special to me, for numerous reasons, but most importantly I think it is a song that reminds us about the fragility of life, and how we should cherish each moment with our loved ones.

Coleen has released a music video for “Beautiful Boy,” and I am proud to share it with you. Visit YouTube.com/ColeenMcMahon to view the video. #ColeenMcMahon #BeautifulBoy #BridegroomMovie

In 2005, my dad, Great Grandma Pat, and her dog Snoopy came to visit me in Los Angeles. We wanted Grandma to have the true Los Angeles experience, so we took her to Hollywood. As we were walking down the infamous Hollywood Boulevard, my dad and I suddenly realized that Grandma was no longer with us. We retraced our footsteps and ultimately found her…..with a giant snake wrapped around her shoulders! She was explaining to the snake’s owner, “Back home in Montana I kill hundreds of snakes.” When he asked her how she killed them she replied, “I just use a shovel and then throw ‘em into the burn barrel.” Gotta love her. #TBT #ThrowbackThursday #BridegroomMovie #GreatGrandmaPat (at Hollywood Walk Of Fame)

Even after about 100 interviews over the past 3 weeks I still feel like my heart is going to burst out of my chest each time! At least we know my heart and adrenal glands are working properly. 

Gotta face my fears. :)

Special thanks to Alicia Menendez & Ignacio Torres for having me on This Is Fusion. #BridegroomMovie #ThisIsFusion  (at ABC Studios)

In a world of people being who they are not, be the person that you are. #QuoteOfTheDay

I’ve received a lot of messages asking me if I still have Justin Bobby. I do. :) Two of my amazing neighbors (Carrie & Savannah) have been taking care of him while I’m away. 

Savannah’s mom bought Justin a cowboy hat for Halloween. She just texted me this photo…I can’t stop laughing. There’s nothing better than pets wearing Halloween costumes. I miss the little guy.

I was honored to screen #BridegroomMovie at Wrigley Field yesterday. Thank you Mark, Jeremy, Laura, and Brooke for having me. I encourage everyone to support IllinoisUnites.org as there is a very crucial vote coming up for marriage equality in Illinois.  (at Wrigley Field)

For the majority of my life, I hid in the proverbial shadows, ashamed of who I was, and afraid of what the world would think of me. Life seemed bleak until I met the love of my life, Tom, who taught me to live, and love, with honestly and unbridled passion. Even in death, Tom’s lessons live on, through me and our story. It’s difficult to describe the journey I’ve taken over the past few years, but I hope you will share it with me by tuning in tonight when BRIDEGROOM premieres on The Oprah Winfrey Network.

BRIDEGROOM is not about politics. It is a film about love, forgiveness, and discovering the courage to be who you are when the world says you shouldn’t. I am incredibly proud of this film, and am so grateful to have the opportunity to share this deeply personal story with you.

Thank you all for your continued support of me and #BridegroomMovie. (at Harpo Studios)

I am beyond blessed to have a beautiful and caring mother. She has supported me in my greatest times of need, loved me when I’ve forgotten to love myself, and believed in me without judgment. I love you, Mom. I can’t possibly tell you that enough. #BridegroomMovie #LoveIsLouder #LoveIsLove (at Harpo Studios)
