It was a “coming out”as I had struggled with whether or not I would or could do an LGBTQ wedding. Now that I am Presbyterian it was sanctioned (I am PCUSA). I struggled with what I believed and thought, knowing full well we have many fundamentalist Christians in our hospital who might not approve. I just finally decided that love is love and I actually felt very good about doing it. It was fun to work with the couple and make it what they envisioned, using their language especially at the end. I said “I now pronounce you married. You may kiss one another.” And then I said “I now present to you Mrs. and Mrs. and their first names. It was what they requested, again not using the word “wife.” Interesting that I only got positive comments as a result!
