VIDEO: Same-Sex Weddings Performed During Seattle Chorus Concert
Clip description via JMG reader Sean Chapin:
"December 9, 2012 was the first day same-sex couples could legally wed in the state of Washington. During the holiday concert on December 9 for Seattle Men's Chorus (SMC), two couples were married on stage. Neil Hoyt (member of SMC) and his partner of 24 years, Donald Jenny, were married first. Then Jane Abbott Lighty and Pete-e Petersen, both members of Seattle Women's Chorus and together for 35 years, were married next. Anne Levinson, retired judge and former deputy Seattle mayor, officiated. Dennis Coleman and Rhonda Juliano were witnesses. In front of both choruses and an audience of over 2,000 people, these couples tied the knot in a day of love, celebration, and pure joy! The video was produced by Paul Thomasson."Get a tissue.
