NY Marriage Equality Concert & Commitment Ceremony Photos

Enjoy the pictures from NY Marriage Equality Concert and Commitment Ceremony at Middle Collegiate Church. It was nice to be and feel apart of something so magical, so often growing up I felt like an outsider, so I cherish these moments.

It was great to see gay and straight couples, black couples, white couples, inter-racial couples, old couples, young couples all standing together in Love and God.

Senior Minister Jacqui Lewis and husband Rev. John Janka. It was beautiful to see so many lifting their voices and using their power to say yes to change. Sometimes we can forget how powerful we are – when we start lifting our voices and showing up and saying yes to what we believe in, ripples form that spread out further than you or I could imagine.

More Photos from “Amazing Grace” video shoot

Here are more photos from our video shoot. The male lead is Ron Hill, he was really sweet, he is actually a comedian. It was about 30 degrees outside and we were both freezing… lol –  so we were really happy to be inside afterwards:)
