Video - DC Same-Sex Couple Gets Married
March 10, 2010
Angelisa Young and Sinjoyla Townsend celebrated the marriage in front of friends, family, and media covering the first marriages the District. Young and Townsend were profiled in The Washington Post:
"When I think I can't love you, respect you and cherish you any more, tomorrow comes," Young said, in vows she had written herself.
"When you call I will respond," Townsend replied. "You are my rock, my life, my love."
After the ceremony, they emerged from the building, faces stretched into delighted grins. "I don't have a political platform," Townsend told a gathering crowd. "I just wanted to marry Angel."
