City Hall We wanted to have an outdoor wedding in the square.In any case, with 240 guests we couldn’t all go inside.It was still raining last week so this was a gamble. I was watching all the locals in the village on the street. There were many familiar faces from my childhood, some with binoculars. I called and clapped from the window. My grandfather was afraid he would throw tomatoes at us because we were gay, but there was nothing but love. I grew up gay in a small village. So, it felt so good to feel all that love. This village celebrates gay couples. It was beautiful and important. A sense of security.”
