Same-sex marriage ceremony to be held on Rose Parade float

I cannot wait to see this! From the LA Times:

The happy couple
Danny Leclair snapped a photo of two toy grooms holding hands. He then sent the photo via email to his longtime partner, Aubrey Loots, with a question:"Do you want to get married on a Rose Parade float?"

Loots agreed, and on New Year’s Day the Los Angeles couple will become real-life wedding cake toppers when they say “I do” on a cake-shaped float in the 125th Tournament of Roses Parade.
The AIDS Healthcare Foundation’s float, “Living the Dream: Love Is the Best Protection,” was created to celebrate victories in 2013 for gay marriage advocates, including Supreme Court decisions upholding the repeal of California’s Proposition 8 and striking down a key part of the Defense of Marriage Act.

Well, the bigots and Christianist haters are in high dudgeon over this calling for boycotts of viewing the parade, with comments like this gem:
Brian Brown, president of the National Organization for Marriage, quickly joined the conversation, issuing a statement saying children watching Wednesday's parade "will be exposed to the spectacle of men 'marrying' men with the attendant public hugging and kissing."
Oh, how icky for Brian. I am very pleased the Tournament of Roses folks are not putting up with this bigoted shit. And for those that think the ceremony is just wrong, I say "Go fuck yourself!".

UPDATE**  And here's the happy couple atop the floral Wedding cake. Congratulations you guys!

Note: No one's doing those polka-dot cakes anymore honey... Try to keep up
