    There Was A Same-Sex Wedding On Television Set To A Musical, And It Really Was Something Quite Special

    Towards the end you didn't actually care that it was a musical, either.

    So there was this show on British TV last night.

    A musical wedding may sound a bit much.

    But trust me... the musical is so much more meaningful and emotional than you first expected.

    The service started with words from Stephen Fry: "Dearly beloved. We are gathered here today to witness something so extraordinary in this time..."

    We were then introduced to the happy couple.

    The attendees of the wedding started singing.

    They sang quite catchy lyrics.

    Even Newsreader Jon Snow (not to be confused with THE Game of Thrones' Jon Snow) sang about it.

    But then they started to walk down the aisle.

    And looked at each other with pride.

    A TELEVISED SAME-SEX WEDDING.

    Politicians sent in their congratulations.

    Andy Bell from Erasure performed "A little respect".

    And key moments in LGBT history were shown.

    Leading you to really consider how far LGBT rights have come in a short space of time.

    And then, out of nowhere, the mothers of both grooms sang about how they've come to terms with both of their sons coming out.

    And how proud they are right now.

    Woah. That was much more emotional than I originally thought.

    Benjamin and Nathan *sang* their vows.

    And properly started to cry and everything.

    You really started to care about what same-sex marriages mean.

    All my childhood dreams were just made possible. Be a lover. Be proud of what it represents for our next generation #ourgaywedding

    Although some people were confused.

    Oh lord, just seen @StephenFry on #OurGayWedding The Musical! I feel so betrayed. After all these years he never told me he likes musicals.

    Then, this moment... "You may now kiss the groom."

    Holy hell.

    This didn't even need to be a musical to be televised.

    This, alone, is awesome.
