Fran Drescher Wants to Officiate Your Gay Wedding
Fran Drescher is doing a lot of the gays next month. She's currently taping answers to your dating questions, which will air on Gay.net and Out.com in just a few short weeks, and the big news of this week is that she's launched her “‘Love Is Love’ Gay Marriage Contest.” This cool event will see the famous actress officiating the marriages of three lucky gay couples in New York City on March 6, 2012.
The online contest is living on the Happily Divorced Facebook page and will end at 11:59pm ET/8:59pm PT on February 20, 2012—that's next Monday. Candidates must either submit a video (not more than 120 seconds in length) or a photo and 350-word essay telling their love story. The submission should explain how their relationship best represents the idea that “love is love” and why they want Drescher to perform their ceremony. Once the entry period has closed, Drescher will hand-select her top three couples based on their story and originality. (FYI - the contest is open only to residents of New York, New Jersey and Connecticut.)
“It is our duty to recognize that injustice exists and shift national consciousness to correct that injustice," Drescher said via a press release. "Marriage equality is our opportunity to uphold our constitutional values, to stretch beyond our comfort zone and mature into a better version of ourselves. It is only by example that we may continue to be a beacon of freedom for the rest of the world. This is a no brainer, people; after all... love is love."
