PHOTOS: Newly (Re-)Married Dan Savage And Terry Miller Are So Pretty In Their Tuxes

Dan Savage and Terry Miller were among the first same-sex couples to wed in Washington this weekend and though the two were married previously in Canada, they wouldn’t have missed this opportunity for the world.

“We fought hard to get this law passed and we wanted to be part of this day,” Savage told MSNBC’s Chris Hayes. “On our first wedding, we didn’t have guests or friends there. We snuck off to Canada and eloped and went to our tenth anniversary party without telling anyone they were at a wedding reception. We are doing it a bit more publicly this time and inviting family.”

Savage spoke with Hayes in New York prior to renewing his vows in his hometown of Seattle, and the columnist just happened to have a spare bottle of champagne thanks to a mix-up at his hotel. Savage and Hayes shared a toast, even though it was before 8 in the morning, but hey, we’re certainly in no place to judge.

Before getting tipsy at the crack of dawn, however, Savage soberly reflected on the Supreme Court’s decision to hear two marriage equality cases. “If we lose at the Supreme Court,” he said, “there’s other cases because we are going to keep living, existing, coming out, marrying and suing until we get justice.”

Congrats to Dan and Terry on their wedding day…and their wedding night. After their ceremony, Savage reportedly said, “We’re heading out. It’s time to consummate this thing.”

      Dan and Terry are so cute and what a victory for all of us that they got married under the new law. Dan has really represented the LGBT community for a long time over this issue of marriage. I feel we really owe a lot to him. He is also so good looking.

      Tuxes? Maybe, but the pic is not clear enough to see and you certainly do not wear a long tie with a tux, but then Dan Savage was never a model dresser. Wishing them well, but Savage’s advice and style is very assimilationist and often leaves a lot to be desired from the point of real gay liberation and what we might have brought to the general culture as opposed to just fitting in and being accepted. Better to improve the whole lot rather than just get to join the party.

      This is very much the language of the generation before gays thought they would ever get the right to marry.

      How about some details? Would you have preferred that they dressed in drag? G Strings? Leather Chaps? What other step and fetchit characterization would you have them embody?

      @EvonCook: Actually you can wear a long tie with a tux and it’s done quite often. I would rather do a bow tie, but it is done none the less.

      I’m proud of these guys and proud of Washington. Chris and I have been together for 33 years and would love to get married. I doubt it will happen in Missouri in my lifetime. IMO, we need to push for federal laws governing marriage. State’s rights is becoming a burden on freedom.

      He’s kind of “GLAADED OUT” these days….How much of his foundations money actually goes to help anyone?
