Thank you, Baltimore Sun, for featuring a same-sex couple in your Scene section this past Sunday. The article "A step delayed 12 years" (June 2) shows a loving male couple in white dinner jackets on their wedding day in Maryland. The article describes how both men met, their wedding day plus the participation of both families in the ceremony and reception. It was truly moving to see this story featured in a major Maryland newspaper and I'm guessing this is a first for the Sun.

Of course, all of this is possible because our state lawmakers passed the same-sex marriage bill last year, Gov. Martin O'Malley signed the bill and a majority of our state citizens voted to uphold the law. Bravo to The Sun and the state of Maryland!
