Could someone pinch me please! Somehow we have ended up living in a place where federally recognized marriage is a reality and, though I know that so many have worked for so long to make this dream come true, at certain times it still is unbelievable.
This new reality recently allowed us, after many years together, to “tie the knot”. We began Pride Day by having the honor to be present at the raising of the Washington marriage equality flag on top of the Space Needle, then marching with the GSBA Briefcase Brigade, and following all of that (as if that wasn’t enough), we held a small wedding ceremony at our home in Seward Park surrounded by friends and family. We were thrilled to have GSBA leader Louise Chernin officiate the event.

What a great time this is to be alive and even though we know there is more to do to help achieve equality for all, how great it is to help make sure that happens by supporting those who will make a difference for the next generation. If you are planning your big day, why not include the GSBA Scholarship Fund in your suggested gifts? It helps complete the old adage of “something borrowed, something blue, something old and something new”… a new chance at success for a deserving student.
Cheers to your happiness and to love and equality for all!
