Andrew Sullivan’s Gay Wedding Blows Our Minds!

It may be tempting to call Andrew Sullivan an “inhuman monster”, but rest assured he’s got a heart. Somewhere.

The conservative journo’s a mere week away from marrying his artist – and flattering – boyfriend, Aaron. And, like any soon-to-be bride, old Sully’s got some nerves. And, like all nerves, reveal his more vulnerable side:

The other night it hit me for the first time that this is really about to happen. I guess I had just put it out of my head until it was only a matter of a week or so away. My fiancé, Aaron, and I have lived together for three years. I have no qualms about our actual relationship. For me, this is for life.

However, standing up in front of my family and my spouse’s and saying the vows out loud has me in a state of butterflies. I can go on television and barely break a sweat, but I’m terrified of performing in front of my own family.

I’m scared that I’ll lose it. I bawled through the last same-sex wedding I went to. When I was diagnosed with HIV 14 years ago, I assumed that this day would never come.

For the first time in my adult life I will have a home.

Congratulations, Andrew! We can’t wait to see you in white! What’s that? We’re not invited? Family and friends only!? Humph, we take back the first sentence of this posting…

      Gee, maybe if he hadn’t worked to put Republicans in office for so many years, his wedding would actually be able to mean something other than just having some friends and family over for a nice party where a witchy lesbian waves a twig over your head and pronounces you “partners.”

      I take it he’s getting married in Canada, since he did a good job of getting the GOP in national offices in the United States. Good luck, Andy, and I hope your union is happy, unlike the ones you’ve denied to your brothers and sisters by your political support of the Republican Party, which is beyond help or reform.

      he does realize that what he’s doing, and the party he is involved with are in direct conflict… right?

      if republicans could do one thing swiftly, it’s make homosexuality illegal.

      i hope that doesn’t confuse him on his wedding night.

      Massachusetts, Canada–it’s all the same to his party. Just a bunch of godless heathen lib’ruhls.

      Ever notice how the more these “celebrity” types trumpet their marriages, the quicker they break up: Bob Paris/Rod jackson/Ellen & Anne, etc.etc. (Elton is the exception.)

      But then again, Sullivan believes that every detail of his life is interesting to anyone else …

      Hey did anyone else see the spelling above is “weedding”.Hmm? Unconsiously saying this a ‘weed’ with a ‘ding’? Maybe?
      Ain’t it amazing the twisted acrobats in thinking he must be doing. Lost in his own world I guess. Admitting he is getting married to a man is signing his own death warrant with the GOP!
      Very strange.

      The artwork too is not ‘uplifting’.

      How has Sullivan “worked to put Republicans in office”? Because he’s a self-described conservative? Or preferred George Bush to Al Gore in 2000? (Which many fags did–hell, according to the 2004 exit poll, a quarter of gay voters voted for Bush/Cheney. Sullivan endorsed Kerry in 04.) I just don’t see a reasonable case that Sullivan has set the gays back in any way. It’s not as if he’s Roy Cohn or Phyllis Schlafly’s son.

      I think that lots of gay ppl that criticize him aren’t very familiar with his work–a lot of the comments here are a strong indication of that. Not necessarily his blog, but more his books and articles. “Virtually Normal” was published in 1994 or 1995, and was mostly ahead of its time. The sad thing is that what the book identifies as the two paramount gay rights goals (marriage and military service) are still out there to be achieved.

      He can get under my skin too, though.
