My biggest fear was that my family would accept that I’m dating a girl and won’t treat her the same as if I had a boyfriend. Well that fear came true and it didn’t change any. I’m not afraid anymore. They just won’t be invited to me and my girlfriend’s bomb ass wedding.— Jay Jay the Jet Plane (@jordangokey) November 5, 2019
That is a tough one. So sorry you two are having to go through this. You deserve this day to be filled with love and nothing but respect. Live your life for yourself ladies. If you live anywhere near Seattle, my wife and I would be happy to walk you as your mothers. Xo— Dori B Custer (@CusterDori) November 19, 2019
It would be so special for Ellen to be in this role but please know that I would be honored to walk you down the aisle! Love is love and for those that don’t understand, they don’t deserve you. 💛— Dizzy Rog (@Rogers13_Nolan) November 5, 2019
