Nonfamous reality

Interestingly enough, the Porter-Smith wedding may become part of a Canadian documentary on gay marriage. Academy Award-nominated Paperny Films has contacted us about filming our wedding for an upcoming documentary, and we've said yes.

The producers seem great, and as a bonus we'll get a professional video production of our wedding. Paperny's proposal for six one-hour episodes is up for final approval with Canada's Global network in March; if approved, filming would continue through fall 2004, with a projected air date of fall 2005. They are also talking to Showtime, which has aired some of their other work. Though there will be no nudity in this production, they do want to talk to our families about raising--and now marrying off--gay sons. That is sure to be revealing.

While the prospect of being famous in Canada fits with the name of this blog, if Showtime picks it up would we still be nonfamous? We'll cross that bridge when we come to it.

In the mean time, we'll just have to think about the drama that will ensue if the first meeting of Meg and Judy is filmed by a TV crew. The only question is, who is more ready for her closeup?! "Ring me, Judy, we don't want to clash!"

On a related note, I hope there are a lot of same-sex marriages in Massachusetts before legislation can make it illegal.

After the extreme makeover team contact me I will be ready for anything - bring on the camera's darlings. If they have Oprah interviewing I'm sure she will have stacked it on again by then and I will look sensational. Please God help!!!
