Ben + Matthew’s Wedding Registry

Matthew has done a great service for both our country and the LGBT community’s quest for marriage equality, by coming out [as an active Marine] and by his words and actions as an out serviceman. If anyone’s in a position to do so, please consider donating to his and Ben’s fund for their move to Okinawa… since, because of their status as gay men, the military will not. Good luck to both of you, Matthew and Ben! And congratulations!

Work in Progress

Ben and I will be getting married in a few weeks and set up our Wedding Registry at MyRegistry.com. With our upcoming move to Okinawa, we don’t have much need for many things. We are, however, concerned about the cost of Ben moving to Okinawa with me, since the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) prohibits the military from recognizing Ben as my spouse. That means Ben’s airfare, moving expenses, lodging, and medical will be on us. The expense will run into the thousands of dollars. If you’d care to contribute to help us meet these costs until DOMA is repealed, please visit our registry and consider donating to our Okinawa Fund. We will donate anything beyond the actual costs to continuing the fight for LGBT equality.

About deb

Wandering and wondering - taking it all in -- and increasingly shaking my head. Who are we and how did we get to this here? And, what, where and how next? Putting what I see and think out there in pictures and always looking for other ways, hence, this blog. This blog, like me, is a work in process and still doesn't quite know what it wants to be when it grows up.
