Gay & Lesbian Wedding Poems

Love poetry to read at a lesbian or gay wedding.
Illustration of two people in love.
For the More Traditional Ceremony

Planning your gay, lesbian, bisexual, and/or queer wedding? You might look at the wedding poems finder or use the lesbian section of the Christian Bible (Ruth 1:16-17) but why not include a queer poem by a queer poet, for maximum queerness? Conveniently, many of the most traditional wedding poems are already by poets who wrote to same sex beloveds, like Shakespeare, Rossetti, Marlowe, and Whitman.

Celebrating the Non-Traditional

Of course, not everyone—not even everyone in a committed relationship—wants to get married or be monogamous. These poems celebrate the good old-fashioned gay values of desire and free love.
