Congratulations to the happy couple(s)!

Today is "legal gay wedding day" in California, as same-sex marriages become legal, and legendary lesbians Del Martin and Phyllis Lyon become the first to be married. Three and a half years ago I had the privilege of attending one of the first (definitely not the first) same-sex weddings in Massachusetts, but no invitations in California yet, I'm sad to say. Despite that, I offer up best wishes to all the happy couples with this classic from Meg Christian, her "Valentine Song." As with so many early songs of the LGBT movement, there's nothing explicitly "same-sex" about it, but if you were a lesbian, you knew she was singing to you (at least that's what my lesbian friends tell me!). The title of the album ("I Know You Know") may also have had something to do with it.

For more of an "out" song, I'll add another song I posted last year, Christian's "Ode to a Gym Teacher." Click on the single left arrow to start the song playing, and on the double-right arrow to play the next song:
