Woman Marries Seattle Building
SEATTLE, Feb. 1 (UPI) — An Occupy Seattle protester who held a ceremony to wed a 107-year-old building said she was protesting the gentrification of the neighborhood.
Babylonia Aivaz said she donned a puffy dress and married the abandoned building at 10th and Union Sunday as a protest against gentrification in the area, Seattlepi.com reported Tuesday.
However, gay-themed magazine Instinct took issue with Aivaz characterizing the wedding as a “gay marriage.”
“Okay, we gotta ask: Why is this like ‘gay marriage’ (as she likes to call it)? Because, we’ll marry horses and dogs and oxen next? Why didn’t she take her loony idea about marrying a building and just call it marriage?” the magazine’s editors wrote.
