As promised, I will continue to post the wedding announcement of LGBTQ couples from the New York Times:
Douglas Edward Mortimer and Dr. Loren Alva Olson were married Saturday by the Rev. Matt Mardis-LeCroy at the Plymouth Congregational United Church of Christ in Des Moines.
Mr. Mortimer owns Malabar Farm in St. Charles, Iowa, with Dr. Olsen, a psychiatrist who has a private practice in Des Moines.
Mr. Mortimer, 52, operates the farm, on which the couple raise Belted Galloway cattle. He is a son of the late Dorothy M. Mortimer, and the late William E. Mortimer, who lived in Rimersburg, Pa.
Dr. Olson, 66, graduated from the University of Nebraska, from which he also received his medical degree. He is a son of the late Martha K. Mortenson who lived in Wakefield, Neb., and the late Alva H. Olson, who lived in Hartington, Neb., and is a stepson of the late Marvin Mortenson.
Mr. Mortimer’s first marriage ended in divorce, as did Dr. Olson’s.
Today, I went to NC Pride at Duke Univ. (East Campus), and I was reminded of the fun and importance of fully telling and showing the world that we are here.
Wedding announcements do the very same thing.
