The First Weddings Are Rolling Out

I remember Martin and Lyon as old warhorses back when I was a young confused LBAQ.
I don't usually put initials after my name anymore (the list got too long!), but of all those available, at midlife I most strongly identify with Q.
No matter who I sleep with (or don't, these days), I have always been Queerish.

At the West Hollywood City Hall, George Takei — who played Sulu on the original "Star Trek" — beamed as he and his partner of 21 years, Brad Altman, obtained one of the new gender-neutral marriage licenses — with the words "Party A" and "Party B" instead of "bride" and "groom." They are planning a September wedding.
"I see before me people who personify love and commitment," a grinning Takei told the crowd. He flashed the Vulcan hand salute from "Star Trek" and, in a twist on the Vulcan greeting from the TV series, said: "May equality live long and prosper."
