Description - The Wedding Heard 'Round the World: America's First Gay Marriage by Michael McConnell

Fifty years after their marriage, Jack and Michael's story is one of the milestone events in the fight for equal rights, and this memoir the unmissable account a remarkable couple.

On September 3, 1971, at the dawn of the modern gay movement, Michael McConnell and Jack Baker exchanged vows in the first legal same-sex wedding in the United States. But the battle to get there - legal and emotional - was only the start of their incredible lives together.

Jack enrolled in law school, keeping his promise to Michael that he would figure out a way to marry. He did, but the repercussions would echo not only through their lives, but through those of everyo gay person in the US who ever wanted what this one pioneering couple did: a happy family life.

This is the story of how they met, how they married, and what came after. And one wedding heard 'round the world.

'A beautiful, well-written love story that is heartrending and ultimately heartwarming'
