Adventures of a Forced Migrant Contact Me
Yesterday, we had a paparazzi wedding ceremony at the Lutheran Church of Reformation in Washington D.C.
It was nonetheless, lovely to share our love with so many people, including all our badass friends from the National Immigrant Youth Alliance, and the same-sex binational couples from Immigration Equality who have so long been denied due process and equal protection under the law.
Special thanks go to Emiliano Rojas, son of Claudio Rojas, who is the Cake Boss of the movement and stayed up all night making us a beautiful wedding cake with the help of Cristobal Lagunas-Alvarez, from DreamActivist Massachusetts. We are still eating through it, but you can have a photo.
We’ll be getting legally married in a private ceremony in August.
Thank you so much for making this day so wonderful and special.
Now Lindsay can work towards getting her Fijian citizenship.
