I had to say a very bittersweet goodbye today to my beautiful and brave friend, Alexandra, who is moving to the east coast. Over the course of almost 10 years we have experienced some of our highest highs and lowest lows together, but ultimately each experience has led to our special friendship that will last for the rest of our lives, even if we are thousands of miles apart.

When I met Tom my life was instantly enriched in countless ways but one of the greatest things he brought into my life was you, @agentcoco. You have faced tremendous obstacles in your life and yet you have managed to thrive and inspire those around you. Your grace and poise is commendable. 

Thank you for your irreplaceable love and friendship. Though I will miss you terribly, I am so proud of and excited for you as you endeavor into this new chapter of your life. And as always, I’m just a FaceTime date away. :)

Yesterday was one of the best days of my life. Since #PROP8 was struck down, I have seen many beautiful couples tie the knot, but yesterday one of Tom’s and my best friends, Scott Davis, married the love of his life, Ryan. You can tell from the photos that we all had so much fun and couldn’t stop smiling. Thank you Scott and Ryan for allowing us to celebrate your love and this new chapter of your lives together.

I had the honor of doing a reading at the ceremony and I thought I would share it all with you.

My marriage prayer for you is this: That you will always remember the qualities that attracted you to each other when you first met and how you felt as your feelings of attraction turned into respect, admiration, and finally love. That you will continue to work hard to turn your feelings of love into acts of love so that nothing and no one can divide you. That you will always have kind and loving hearts that are quick to ask forgiveness when you are wrong and to forgive when your partner is wrong. That your love might grow to bear all things, believe all things, hope for all things, and endure all things. I pray you place your marriage in God’s hands, and that your love increases and overflows, beyond anything you can yet imagine.

Happy Sunday! :) #WordsToLiveBy

Life is short, live it.
Love is rare, grab it.
Anger is bad, dump it.
Fear is awful, face it.
Memories are sweet, cherish them.

I had an amazing time in Dublin! πŸ€

Thank you to Michael Conlon and the Liberties Festival for having me. It’s such an honor that #Bridegroom kicked off the festival and was the first LGBT event in the festival’s 44 year history.

Thank you to GLEN, Belongto, and Marriage Equality Ireland for meeting with me and educating me about the local LGBT movement. I look forward to working together in the future, particularly on next year’s marriage equality referendum.

Special thanks to SPIN Radio 1083, The Last Word with Matt Cooper, Liberties Festival TV, and This Is Radio for having me as a guest. Thanks to the Fleet Hotel for being my home away from home and to Cara Clancy for chaperoning me throughout the entire trip.

Last, but definitely not least, thanks to everyone who came out to the screening! You all made me feel so welcome and it was greatly appreciated. :)
