West Point has its first two gay weddings
According to gay media, the United States Military Academy at West Point, NY has actually hosted two gay weddings. The first ever in the Chapel was between Penelope Gnesin and Brenda Sute Fulton. But there had been a smaller “private” wedding between two of Fulton’s friends at an undisclosed small venue on campus.
All of this has occurred slightly more than one year after full repeal of “Don’t Ask Don’t Tell”. Three or four years ago, we might never have imagined we would be here.
Fulton, 53 is the first openly gay member of West Point’s Board of Visitors.
A site called “Queerly” has a detailed news story here.

My own parents visited West Point on a second honeymoon in the early 1940s, before I was born. I was last there in July 2011.
