Latter-Day Saints, Postmodern Queers, and Dolly Parton

posted by on June 26 at 15:57 PM


These are the subjects of my piece in the Stranger’s 2008 Queer Issue, where it appears as How Not to Get Married on a Deadline.

Also featured in the “How Not to Get Married” package:

*Paul Constant on how not to get married in a Star Trek Outfit.
*Amy J. Ruiz on how not to get married on credit.
*Brendan Kiley on how not to get married by a complete stranger.
*Mistress Matisse on how not to get married in Vegas.
*Jonah Spangenthal-Lee on how not to get married young.
*And Eric Grandy on how not to get married over and over again.

Read the whole thing here.

Cheese-and-rice, is Paul Constant begging for hate mail with the Star Trek piece!  Good thing he has a solid cushion of popularity built up.

My parents got married young (20 and 21), and still are married, thirty-some years later. I think even they're amazed. But they did it right- they didn't get to the having-kids point until they were 30 and 31, after law school, traveling, and even living in Syracuse. Smart kids, they were, I guess.

Beautiful piece, David. The others are good too but this is your post. I know how weird relatives can be. I hope you and Jake have a lovely wedding.

kind of...boring this year. The only piece I really liked was Schmader's because you can never go wrong with Mormons and Dolly Parton in your story.

The bakery initially refused to fashion a wedding cake in the image of a fictional device that killed billions of people until one of the brides huffed, "Look, it's my big gay wedding and we want a Death Star!

I can't quite put my finger on why, but I think I just fell in love with Paul Constant. Maybe it was the mix of Atheism and touching wedding related sensitivity.
