Ruth Bader Ginsburg Officiates Gay Wedding & Here's How We Imagine The Magnificent Ceremony All Went Down
In yet another move that shows us how amazing she truly is, Ruth Bader Ginsburg presided over a same-sex wedding, and as she pronounced the couple husband and husband, she slyly emphasized that she was doing so by the powers vested in her by the Constitution of the United States. It's not like we needed further proof of either where RBG stands on gay marriage or that she's an equal rights warrior. But she gave it to us anyway, and for that, we are grateful.
This was a historic moment for the couple, but another likely historic moment is on its way for the entire country as the Supreme Court justices prepare to make a decision on whether same-sex marriage is a constitutional right. Ginsburg has been an outspoken supporter of LGBT rights for years and years, and just months ago she said she thinks the United States is ready for gay marriage. So, what better person to officiate a loving marriage that also represents a belief she so strongly stands up for?
Michael Kahn and Charles Mitchem were lucky enough to have RBG preside over their wedding, which was by all accounts a sophisticated and exquisite ceremony at a historic location in Washington, D.C. I can't imagine what it would have been like to have the Notorious RBG play such a huge role in such an important moment of their lives. Here's how I imagine the events likely unfolded.
