Society tells us that we can’t be happy without someone and February 14 is full of over priced cheesy reminders that we don’t have anyone so no matter how happy we are single the day still stings a bit.
To make my day much happier though, I’m actually doing the most romantic thing I’ve ever done on Valentine’s in my life.
I’m performing my first same sex wedding ceremony tomorrow night.
It’s a very small, brief “make it legal” kind of ceremony but it will definitely bring a smile to my face.
There is a third army in this battle but they don’t see a lot of active duty. We are the people torn between picking sides a lot of the time.
We see the day as the commercial money making scheme that it is and don’t want to buy into it but then we would also love to be one of those smug couples holding hands and sharing an ice cream after a romantic dinner.
It’s a massive jump forward and it feels incredible.
Obviously we still have to fight on for greater acceptance for ourselves, our trans brothers and sisters and lots of other members of our tribe but today really does feel like an amazing celebration.
on Instagram, when I noticed that I did the shoot exactly one year ago tomorrow.
Today it’s Sydney’s Gay & Lesbian Mardi Gras parade and party.
It’s also the 40th anniversary of the first parade which was actually a protest.
Scott is not a shy man and he looks beautiful nude.
