NYT 's Big Gay Celebration

More than 300 same-sex wedding or commitment announcements have appeared in The New York Times in the past seven years -- now many of the featured couples are coming together to commemorate Stonewall.



The night before their wedding, Van Capelle and Morningstar asked 50 of their guests to come to the Gay Men's Health Crisis to serve food and make safe-sex kits. "It was one of the best parts of the entire weekend," Van Capelle remembers. "Because there at the table were a priest and a nun. And suddenly our 7-year old niece starts jumping up and down saying, "I ran out of the blue ones!'"

"And the nun says, 'Don't worry, dear -- use the purple ones. They're lubricated, but they do the same thing!'"

"Those are the moments I'll remember," says Van Capelle.
