Three years ago...

...we were married at City Hall in San Francisco, our home. Though technically annulled six months later, I choose to ignore the law and consider our marriage valid (in the meantime, we're registered as domestic partners with the state of California, so we have virtually all the same rights on the state level). But when the law changes, we'll do it again just to make sure.



Happy Anniversary, Bear!

Happy Anniversary!

I played IBR that weekend.

hat was probably the best gig in my life. With all the marriage stuff going on, the energy in the room was just amazing.

I remember--we were there, and you were great. I think we even said hi--I've known you for years online (remember cu-seeme?) but I think that's when we ment you in person. It really was the best IBR entertainment we've ever experienced.

Yaaay. You know this year is a "Golden Pig" Year for Chinese New Years. They say it's a really lucky year for couples to have kids. ;^)

You two started the trend, we followed 3 days later (Well 2 days, but were refused on the 15th because the cutoff time for the long line ended before we got to City Hall).

Thus we came back to line on the 16th at 5:30 AM in the pouring rain, and at 3:30PM, we were married as well. The refund check is still stuck uncashed to the refrigerator.

All of us I/T folks

Many Happy Returns, guys!

We never got a refund check...I think it was donated to some marriage rights fund, I can't remember...

Congratulations on Your Anniversary
Just 3 years ago I came out in the Bear Community and was ending a relationship. I saw all the couples getting married at City Hall all week and always saw you two on the news clip. I loved that they were showing bear couples and I actually just met you two about that time.

I wish you many more years of health and happiness together. This photo brings tears to my eyes.

Happy Anniversary !!!
