Out Country Singer Chely Wright Gets Married

WrightBlitzer A hearty congratulations to lesbian country singer Chely Wright, who this weekend married her long-time girlfriend, activist Lauren Blitzer.

Via E! News:

[The women] got hitched Saturday in front of 200 guests at Lauren's Aunt's home in Connecticut. As for the most important question the dresses? Both brides donned traditional white gowns, yet decided to not wear veils as they told the mag: "We like our hair too much!"
As for the menu, although a vegan, Chely let Lauren make the decision to serve barbecue from New York's Blue Smoke, exclaiming, "Lauren's idea—not my influence!"

The women also had both a rabbi and a reverend officiate, since Wright is Christian, but Blitzer is Jewish.

Said Wright to People magazine of the big event: "The freedom of being out and open about who I am allowed me to find and fall in love with Lauren – the most amazing woman I've ever known."

  1. I understand that Rickgay Perry wants to outlaw all this marriage stuff in a constitutional amendment.

    Check out this level of lunacy:

  2. I congratulate them and wish them love and luck. I really admire Chely for coming out in the world of country music - and am saddened by the negative impact that her coming out has had on her career. I hope she gets all that she wants from life.

  4. Too bad Kim Kardashian's 20 million dollar big fat Armenian wedding is totally overshadowing this special occasion.

  5. How about "a rabbi and a Christian minister"? There's no such thing as "a reverend." Did you even study English in school?

    Its' like calling a judge "an honorable."

  6. @Danny
    So he made a mistake. Not everyone knows (or cares) about the difference between a Christian minister and a reverend. It's no reason to be a bitchy nit-picker.

  10. Why on earth does the writer use the adjective to describe this woman as 'lesbian country singer'

    Wouldn't she get enough of that?

    I am sure it is not the most important thing that she is. Why do you have to dimish a person like this?

    Would you also write 'hetrosexual reality star' Kim Kardishian got marriage.

    Just stupid there is a picture there. I am sorry by piont is equality.

    People who are in a sexual minority would like it not to be a big deal & not be treated or looked at any differently.
