Is Your North Carolina DJ Gay Friendly?

Is Your NC DJ Gay Friendly?

“Jim DJed our wedding last weekend in Sharon, and it was a fabulous time!  We had informed him that many of our guests were theatre performers, and he had the Broadway music flowing before the reception had even officially begun (watching my Maid of Honour and bridesmaids vamp to “All That Jazz” while the photographer too family shots is a moment we will remember forever!)  He also worked with my “little sister” who has Downs Syndrome, who had written a speech and rehearsed a song for us, and put her right at ease.  We also had a bunch of last minute changes to our wedding party line-up, and Jim rolled with the punches and took it all in stride.  He definitely is quick on his feet.  In short?  Jim is a great DJ who goes above and beyond, and is definitely worth your booking!!”

Since same sex weddings are becoming legal in different parts of the country at different times, many Disc Jockeys may not have the experience, comfort or even be aware of the same-sex market.  North Carolina is one of the more recent additions to the growing list of gay friendly states.  With my recent relocation to the Raleigh-Durham North Carolina area from Massachusetts I bring many years of experience in performing at gay marriages to North Carolina!

Really, so what are the differences?

I like to think there’s only one fundamental, irrevocable difference between gay and straight weddings – the genders of the happy couple.  However, there are no doubt several wedding traditions that depend on gender roles where conversations need to be had before you even begin planning a gay wedding.  Most of these decisions are made prior to even hiring your Wedding DJ.  When there are two brides or two grooms, the traditional rules no longer apply.  When two men get married, they are both grooms and when two women get married, they are both brides – even if one of them is wearing a tuxedo. Same sex couples need be a little more creative, but they also have more freedom, as they are unencumbered by restrictive and outdated “bride” and “groom” roles.

So when those “traditional” rules no longer apply where does that leave you?  If you don’t know where to begin your first step should be to make appointments for a consultation with several vendors to discuss your ideas.  You can search the internet, talk with friends or best of all come up with your own ideas!  Fundamentally the only differences between gay and straight weddings are in those formalities.  Have fun and be creative!  Some of my most memorable weddings have been gay marriages.  The boundaries are endless.
