Running Bilerico Project has been one momentous event after another. This blog has let me to places I never imagined I'd visit, enabled me to meet so many important people and celebrities, and given me so many memorable experiences that bigstock-Wedding-Rings-1182182.jpgI couldn't begin to describe them all. The love and support from Bilerico's many readers has always been incredible and many of you have become like family to me.

One of our first readers, Steve Publicover, is getting married to his partner, Paul, this month here in DC and I'm honored to say that I've agreed to officiate their wedding.

That's right, gays and gals, Bil Browning, long time LGBT rights activist and Editor in Chief of The Bilerico Project has agreed to officiate at our ceremony in DC next month.

Paul and I feel so honored. Bil has been great about posting articles I've submitted and has been so supportive of my writing. We finally got to meet here in Charlotte when he and his partner, Jerame Davis, Executive Director of Stonewall Democrats, were in town for the Democratic Convention.
I can't express how thrilled Paul and I are to finally be getting married after thirteen years together, on our anniversary date and in the city that I will always think of as my home town.

I can't think of a higher honor than being asked to participate in a Bilerico reader's brightest day. I'm stunned that they picked me and I wish them the largest amount of love their hearts can hold.
