Arizonans Oscar De Las Salas and Gary Jackson had their August 17th California wedding rudely interrupted by homophobic slurs coming from the balcony of a nearby condo complex
De Las Salas, Jackson and thirty guests had gathered in Centennial Park, Coronado to exchange vows. However, cellphone footage shows the officiant standing in front of the couple while someone is shouting the words “homos” and “go home homos.”
Wedding musician David De Alva said that whoever was responsible “really wanted to humiliate the people there. He said, ‘go home fags.’”
De Alva added that although the condo balconies appeared empty, throughout the service the slurs kept coming.
“It’s just sad that that is now ingrained for the rest of our lives in our wedding day. That person took a chunk of what should have been a beautiful day and turned it into something nasty and full of hate.”
The couple have written to and received apologies from the city of Coronado and the condo complex’s Home Owner’s Association.
