Mazel Tov, Felicitaciones, Til Lykke. This will be a short diary but the good news must be shared:

First same-sex couple weds in D.C.

One bride wore a knee-length lace dress and pearls. The other bride wore a yellow shirt and white suit. And when a pastor pronounced them "partners in life this day and for always" Tuesday, they hugged and smiled in front of wedding guests and nearly a dozen TV cameras and reporters.

Congratulations to Angelisa Young and Sinjoyla Townsend, who today became the first same sex couple to wed in our nation's capitol. G'head and tell me it's not much of a diary. Well it isn't. But it is a heck of a moment and a beautiful thing that should be celebrated!

The happy and beautiful couple:

met in a constitutional law class at the University of the District of Columbia. They wed at the office of the Human Rights Campaign, along with two other couples.

Happy marriages begin when we marry the one we love, and they blossom when we love the one we married.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
