This morning Brian Feldman and Hannah Miller, who married 11 months ago to point out the inequality of Florida’s marriage laws, had their own marriage annulled.
The two didn’t enter this marriage lightly, although it may have seemed so to casual observers. They were serious about making the case that near-strangers are allowed to marry in Florida, as long as they’re straight, while committed gay and lesbian couples are not.
It’s been nearly a year since Brian Feldman and Hannah Miller, two near-strangers, married each other at the Orange County Courthouse to protest the fact that devoted couples of the same sex could not do the same thing.
Now Brian and Hannah continue the protest but try to move on with their own lives by going for an annulment. The final hearing is Wednesday Jan. 19, and those who saw the wedding, as I did, may want to witness the continuation of this odd piece of political theater.
Here’s another good reason to see Company, the terrific revival at Mad Cow Theatre: If you go on Thursday night, Sept. 16, 20 percent of your ticket money goes to Equality Florida, the statewide organization that’s trying to eliminate discrimination based on sexual orientation, race, gender and class.
