Joe Birdsong, owner of Rapture Cafe, promised the readers and attendees of last night's Reading for Filth that there would be a huge surprise at the end of the evening. And man did he deliver!

Last night I witnessed my first gay/trans wedding and it was a wonderful thing to suddenly be a part of. This wasn't some kind of ceremony, or unionization or "ring giving" this was a full-on wedding. And you know what, conservatives? The world didn't come to an end. Heterosexuals did not feel like their marriage carried less "sanctity" and everyone gay/straight/trans/black/white applauded.

It's just love, people. Simple love.
Congratulations and best wishes to the happiest and healthiest!

Eric, since I can't fly in to hear what you read, could you post a link to it? (I clicked the "HIV" tag but could only access a few informational posts. Good reading, but not what you read at the Rapture Cafe. Blogger wouldn't let me backclick further.)

Wish I coulda been there.
