The male couple in the VA marriage equality case to celebrate wedding nuptials

The male couple in the VA marriage equality case to celebrate wedding nuptials

The two men have been a couple for 25 years. They filed a case in federal district court against the VA ban on marriage equality. On 13 FEB 2014, the judge, Arenda L. Wright Allen, ruled the ban unconstitutional. On 28 JUL 2014 the US Fourth Circuit Appeals Court upheld the lower court’s ruling. Finally, on 6 OCT the US Supreme Court denied to hear an appeal of the appeals court’s ruling and same gendered marriages became legal in the State of Virginia. This afternoon, Saturday 2 MAY 2015, Tim Bostic and Tony London are tying the knot. The ceremony is at 4 o’clock pm in their home parish, Christ and St Luke’s Episcopal Church, Ghent, VA. All are invited!

Information for this story was gathered here.

Christ and St. Luke’s is located in the Diocese of Southern Virginia.

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
