    Default Cambridge's First Black Lesbian Mayor Denise Simmons Weds

    Denise Simmons, America's first black lesbian mayor, married her partner Mattie B. Hayes Cambridge, Massachusetts on Sunday, according to Dispatch.

    The ceremony was help at the historic Saint Bartholomew's Episcopal Church, which has been serving Cambridge's African-American community for over 100 years.

    Cambridge mayor Simmons said it might have been the "very first" mainstream African-American church "to hold a same-gender wedding." Adding, "that's something that just wouldn't have happened years ago. But times are changing. People are becoming more accepting of their fellow citizens."

    The ceremony was officiated by the Reverend Irene Monroe, a progressive black lesbian Episcopal minister and activist.

    And the silver lining being that this and other stunts will most likely speed up other processes already in motion such as this:
    The splits in the Worldwide Anglican Communion over the churchís secularising trends and growing enthusiasm for homosexuality has led some to seek reunion with the Catholic Church after nearly 500 years apart.
