The wedding between two male Anglican priests stirred up controversy in the Church of England. News story here. By the way, the same thing happened here in the United States earlier this month. Check out my previous post.
The Missouri couple has organized a series of “Marriage Equality Bus” trips from St. Louis to Iowa, enabling about 100 same-sex couples, including themselves, to legally marry. They plan to continue organizing the trips. Their efforts are featured in a documentary film called “Heartland Transport.” Read more here and follow their blog here.
Sadly, although they had been a couple for six years prior to the wedding, they were pressured by family to break up the day after the ceremony, according to press reports. Sharma wore a gown, but is not said to identify as transgender. All press reports describe them as a same-sex couple.
