Gay Couple Married During Grammys Describe The Surreal Experience

gaycouplegrammysIt was an absolutely surreal experience. Being surrounded by all of the celebrities and having Macklemore and Ryan Lewis perform along with Madonna was amazing. And Queen Latifah being our officiant — we were speechless.”

 

— Jason Miller, who married his longtime love Yawar Charlie during the Grammy Awards Sunday, in an interview with Yahoo

      As a Christian ordained minister, I absolutely applaud and support this beautiful moment for the 33 couples. They are blessed to be a blessing to all who interact with them. Amen, and AMEN!

      Mass weddings are creepy and cult-ish. Like something out of North Korea.

      Memo to Jason Miller: celebrities are not real people. They will exploit you for their own purposes. Madonna exploited you and the others for her own purposes.

      As for being speechless, darling, it comes from being star-struck. I use the word “star” loosely in relation to Queen Latifah, hon.

      The ultimate irony is that you had a group of gay people getting married at the Grammys, an awards ceremony which is renowned for giving awards to an assortment of homophobic rappers and hip-hop acts over the years.

      This was like a black person entering the house of his white slave-master to shine his shoes.

      @jimbryant:
      You really are a sad case aren’t you. These guys are happy but you just have to push your own narrow minded view of the world on them. As for your second post that last line just beggars belief, I think you need help.

      @alanj: We saner commenters here have ascertained that jimbryant may be a paid troll from the religious/political extremists’ groups. Pay him no mind… they aren’t getting their money’s worth.

      @alanj: just ignore him or be nice to him. I think this man needs affection and i wish him to find inner peace.

      How trashy to take one of the most intimate of moments that should be spent with just friends and family and doing it live on TV for the whole world to see. It looks like there are few people that have any respect for themselves and are seeking to just be “famous”.

      @sportyguy1983: Looking at those happy, beautiful faces and the tears of joy, I don’t see many looking to be famous. To be sure, they took advantage of a rare opportunity, which was their right, and which I support them fully! Pastor Dak!

      Yawar’s outfit was my favorite (the filling looks delicious as well, but alas, it is not taken)

      That’s why there was such a shut out of black musicians this year….”Macklebore” is not a rapper…

      Maddona’s presence was just so awkward on so many levels. It’s always got to be about her. Always.

      @AuntieChrist lol I am 31 and that is the only fact you got right. It is just plain trashy. They should have had some class and dignity and should have spent what will be the most important moment in their lives (until and if they have children) celebrating with family and friends and not the whole country and a bunch of musicians who could give a crap about them outside of this publicity stunt.

      @jimbryant: you are one miserable excuse for a human being. You must sit in your BarcaLounger in front of the trailer trying to concoct ways to ruin other people’s day. Darlin’ it ain’t working.

      Who needs homophobic straight people like NOM and WBC when we have our very own judges like sportyguy1983. Every time this guy comments on a story it’s just about how he disapproves of whatever gay the story is about. Clearly he’s superior to anyone and everyone since he spends so much time trolling online to explain that to us.

      There may be some troll comments on here, but it does seem that these couples traded in what should have been a special moment to be used as a commercial for that Macklemore song. It was just plain weird. Not all of us want to be used in the Hollywood-cause-dujour machine.

      @@tookietookie: Yes, because Macklemore needed to create a commercial moment for a song that’s over a year old and was already a massive hit way before the Grammys ever aired. Makes lots of sense.*yank yank*

      @sportyguy1983: Honey. I’ve been out and proud for the last 39 years…When you have spent most of your life just fighting for basic equal rights and never thought you would see the day when you and your not yet legal husband of 25 years would even have a chance to tie the knot in the legal sense…Every little thing becomes a victory…I wish you young folk could understand that…In 24 years you will be my age and I hope you never have to suffer one day…But remember it was me and mine who took to the streets and took a beating for it so that some gay folk could stand up on that stage. Just saying it’s all about perspective.

      Man – some real cynics here. You give life to the “bitter queen” stereotype. I thought it was great. Congrats to all of the couples!

      @pauleky: It was awesome…Even though it was a mix of gay and straight seems like folks are only focused on the few gays that were there…Bringing everyone together and not just making it a gay thing was brilliant…I think it was the highlight of the entire evening.

      The moment was about celebrating differences and what would at a different time and even in this time in some places, be considered wrong. There were gay couples, interracial couples, older with younger etc. It was about the right to be different and the freedom to express that difference. I thought it was beautiful and moving….. Congrats to all those couples.
