Welcome to a special weddings edition of Ask a Homo, Outward’s no-judgement answer service for all your questions on LGBTQ politics, culture, etiquette, language, and other queer conundrums. This week J. Bryan Lowder catches a bouquet of nuptial queries, ranging from what to expect in a same-sex ceremony to the mystery of why, even in an age of increasing marriage equality, some gay couples still insist on eschewing the aisle altogether.
If there are questions you’ve been dying to ask a member of the real rainbow coalition, this is your chance. Send your queries—for publication—to firstname.lastname@example.org, and please put “ASK A HOMO” in the subject line. Note that questions may be edited.
