    Love this picture… I just finished writing a song with this lyric…
    “Cuz June is the month that we celebrate Pride,
    And what could be cooler than a double June Bride”

    I’m singing it at my wedding on June 30th and then it will enter The Ukuladies regular repertoire!!

    The rest of the song is below!

    I’m getting gay married in June
    I’m just about over the moon
    My sweetheart’s as sweet as a sweetheart can be,
    And she’s good to me, and I’m good to she,
    We’re as happy and gay as a couple can be!
    We’re getting gay married in June.

    I’m getting gay married in June,
    I’m going to be be gay married soon
    Cuz June is the month that we celebrate Pride,
    And what could be cooler than a double June Bride
    Oh this time of year, it’s so great to be queer,
    I’m getting gay married in June

    Yes I’m getting gay married in June,
    That’s why I am singing this tune,
    And if folks should say
    “It don’t count if you’re gay”
    They can go live with Newt on the moon.

    We’re going be legally wed!
    I can’t get it quite through my head!
    We’re two lucky gals, cuz we didn’t have to wait.
    When we wanted to get hitched, they made it legal in our state.
    But lots of our friends don’t yet share the same fate,
    So it won’t be complete until it’s a federal mandate!
    (including naturalization rights for immigrant spouses! Right Claire and Esin?)

    Yes we’re getting gay married in June
    Our life is a one gay honeymoon.
    In our mountain top home
    Our three dogs and the cat
    A home full of love
    What’s better than that!
    And a Subaru too!
    I love our great life
    And what’s cooler still
    Soon we’ll both have a wife!

    A life full of love
    I thank god above
    that I’m getting gay married in June!
