Recommendation: Blog Post on Offbeat Bride about Wedding Suits

XylophoneGender recommends…

Wedding Suits & Dresses

Seattle based author/blogger Ariel writes & manages OffBeatBride. She tracked down S.Bear Bergman to give advice concerning “wedding suits for butches, transmasculine beings, and other festive gender-blenders.” She also posted about the wedding of queerfemme Aly and genderqueer Elroi in Atlanta, and was quick to amend the pronouns she used for Elroi once she learned that ze prefers gender-neutral ones in print.
P.S Amazing reader comment quoting a wedding pre-invite: “He was my girlfriend, then he was my boyfriend, and now he’s my fiancé, but he has been my true love all along. We would be honored if you would join us in celebrating our commitment to each other. Wedding invitation to follow.”

    Those wedding pics are my favoritest. They were one of the first things I found online that made me feel like my own expressions have beauty & value. I had not before seen queer folks being so open & having that openness celebrated by their friends & families.
