Ich habe eine Kino-Empfehlung für euch. Der Film heißt @lovesimon_de. Ich muss den Film unbedingt gucken, weil er ein bisschen meine Geschichte erzählt, denn dort entdecke ich ganz viele Ähnlichkeiten zu meiner Geschichte. Es hat lange gedauert, aber jetzt habe ich den Mut es öffentlich zu machen.
I'm gay and proud.
This is Rev. Lynne Weber who will be marrying Justin and I at The Church of Atonement in Tenafly, NJ later this year. Justin’s sister, his parents, and grandparents were all married in this Episcopalian church — and I am proud to say that we will be the first gay couple to be married in this holy place. Today, we worked the church’s Blessings To Go booth at Tenafly’s first ever gay pride parade.
Rev. Weber wrote the following blessing that I would like to share with all of you today in celebration and unity:
God bless you, sons and daughters of God, with pride, respect and dignity. Be thankful for the gift of your life and know that you are valued for who you are. May the Spirit heal you of any pain inflicted by ignorance, prejudice, or discrimination. God grant you the courage to freely live and love, respecting the worth of all God’s children and all creation, strength to share your many gifts with the world and to fulfill your potential in life. Amen. #gaypride#gay#pride#weareone#weareallgodschildren#tenaflypride#tenafly#gayandproud
