Because here at Mombian, I’m dedicated to bringing you all the really important news about lesbian moms:
This is what happens when you let same-sex couples get hitched—they do so with their own style. Anita Bayliss and Margaret Wood had a Star Trek-themed civil partnership ceremony in Swansea, South Wales, to commemorate their meeting in a Star Trek forum. Not only did the women wear Starfleet dress uniforms, but they required their guests to wear Star Trek costumes as well. Bayliss’ two sons (of unspecified age) wore Captain Kirk outfits. (Let’s face it, if one was Kirk and one was Picard, there would have been fistfights over who was better.)
No word on where they’re beaming to for their honeymoon (or on whether J. J. Abrams will include any actual gay characters in the next Star Trek film, although After Elton seems hopeful).
