What does a comic book have to do with LGBT equality?A whole lot, especially when it inspires a gay wedding ceremony.
While we do not know much more about the soon-to-be-released comic, it is welcoming news to hear that LGBT comic book fans are being recognized in the shoes of their superhero counterparts.
Part of the reason that Scott and Jason are coming to New York for this ceremony is because their home state of Ohio has yet to support marriage equality.
While marriage equality has yet to be legally recognized in some states, the call for equality and the acceptance of LGBT individuals joins superheroes in the pages of comic book legends.
Midtown Comics, a hub for New York City comic book fans, has been the site of many news conferences, book signings and midnight sales.
On Wednesday, the store will have its first wedding. 51,” in which the mutant superhero Northstar marries his boyfriend Kyle, Midtown Comics will present the wedding of Scott Everhart, 39, and Jason Welker, 33, a couple from Columbus, Ohio, who were selected from more than 50 applicants.
