The great state of New York joined five others and the District of Columbia in granting same-sex couples the right to marriage late in the evening on Friday, June 24 and I'm pleased as punch! So, to celebrate, here is a list of some of science fiction and fantasy's best LGBT couples that could finally be legally married in the Empire State if they ever find themselves transported to our 'verse.
Ianto Jones and Captain Jack Harkness, Torchwood
Willow Rosenberg and Tara Maclay, Buffy the Vampire Slayer
Northstar and Kyle, Uncanny X-Men and Alpha Flight
Dr. Frank-N-Furter and Rocky, Rocky Horror Picture Show
Xena and Gabrielle, Xena: Warrior Princess
Albus Dumbledore and Gellart Grindelwald*, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows
REAL LIFE BONUS!
Neil Patrick Harris, titular star of Dr. Horrible's Sing-a-long Blog, announced his engagement to long time partner David Burtka this past Saturday.
So, what other LGBT (or in the case of Captain Jack, omnisexual) couples should be on the list?
*Sure, Grindelwald turned out to be a bad guy but our man Dumbledore deserved some love!
