The bride was covered in cracker crumbs, but didn't care. The Brides of March drove mini-vans, paid taxes, bought braces, and joined the PTA, never expecting the phone call in March, 2004, that would send them leaping through the suddenly opened window of same-sex marriage, with their kids along for the raucous ride. "The Brides of March" is a bride's eye view of same-sex marriage at a moment's notice, with a bevy of brides, their coterie of children, donuts, newspaper reporters, screaming protesters, mothers of the brides who never thought they'd see the day, white wedding cake, and a houseful of happy heterosexuals toasting the marriage. But that was only the beginning as these private declarations of love became public fodder, fueling social commentary, letters to the editor, and the fires of political debate, when all the brides wanted was the opportunity to say "I do" in this candid, poignant, and frequently funny tale of lesbian moms getting to the church on time in Multnomah County. "DeMotier opens your eyes to the heart and soul of this generation's civil rights battle." - Diane M. Linn, former Multnomah County Chair " . a beautifully-written, quirky look at the pros and cons of same-sex marriage from the inside out, smart without being preachy, funny without being bitter, emotional without being maudlin." -Anne Mini, Ph.D.
