Historic Day for Gay Marriage in Albuquerque, NM

New Mexico Gay Marriage: Bernalillo County Begins Issuing Licenses.

On Tuesday we went downtown to spend the morning with our local LGBTIQ+ community as they gathered and started applying for marriage licenses, on this, the very first day it was legal to do so in our county. There were couples there that have been together over 40 years. They were overcome with joy at finally being able to make their union legal. Ministers, Rabbis, Priests, and all sorts of ordained marriage makers were milling about, at the ready to marry anyone who asked. We were capturing the story and making wedding memory photos in a buzzing blur of happy energy.

At noon, there was a group ceremony of gay marriage with hundreds of people in the Civic Plaza,

There were flowers and wishes and vows and clapping, bubbles, kisses and warm warm hugs. There wasn’t a dry eye on the plaza.

Enjoy!
