I’m just going to post a little part of what was read from Alex and Nate’s ceremony by Nate’s sister Anna. It was the remarks by president Obama at the LGBT reception. It was beautifully read and the exchanging of their vows was simply amazing.
“So every year, we set aside this month to celebrate the ways that so many lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender Americans have helped to make our union just a little more perfect. We honor the countless nameless heroes who paved the way for progress: The activists who marched. The advocates who organized. The lawyers who argued cases. The families who stood by their loved ones, even when it was tough. Every brave American who came out and spoke out, especially when it was tough. Because of them, because of all of you, there’s a lot to be proud of today.” – President Obama
