GayWeddings.com CEO Kathryn Hamm I have already had several discussions about the dearth of resources for dapperQ’s who are getting married.
Kathryn told me that dapperQ gives new meaning to the word “bridegroom.”
The entire country may be in an uproar about the destruction of family values but for some of us, it’s just about finding the right outfit. That’s hard enough for your average bride. But as afterellen.com’s emily hartl (whose nuptials are pending) pointed out in an article this week, the heterosexist nature of most wedding magazines make it much tougher for lesbians:
I’ve had a lot of travel time in the past week, and I managed to pour through Real Simple‘s current wedding issue from front to back and though I couldn’t put it down — they just have so many brilliant ideas! I was periodically irked at the sole straight references in the text. It is 100% made for every hetero couple’s magic (they often refer to your “husband”), but I came to terms with it and drank up a lot of the suggestions not pertaining to impressing my “dude.”
Fuggedaboudit if you are a dapperQ. Who ya gonna call?
I love, love, love when those wearing the suits pair them some really fancy sneakers when they’re dressing to impress. I think some kicks by Nike would go nicely with many a tux or suit and I’m basically going to try and convince you that they would, too. It really says “All my life, I prayed for someone like you,” don’t you think? You could color coordinate with your palette, imagine how perfectly it will all match and accent. That’s all I ask.
Kathryn told me that dapperQ gives new meaning to the word “bridegroom.” I count her as a valuable dapperQ ally since she founded gayweddings.com — with her mother no-less– ten years ago because she couldn’t find a cake-topper for her wedding.
