Ahh, spring. My favorite season of the year. The birds are chirping; the sun is shining; the snow is melting, except when it’s not because this is Minnesota we’re talking about; and the pollen from every conceivable plant attacks my sinuses with gusto. I love spring. Good times.
And spring is largely symbolic as a period of rebirth, renewal, and new beginnings, and what better way to take advantage of that symbolism than celebrating the joys of love and marriage?
For our Spring 2018 Love & Marriage issue, we highlight the mirthful merriment of matrimony with a look at the gorgeously unconventional fashion of Minneapolis designer Samantha Rei, a gander at the high-class wedding and event venue known as The Hutton House, a peek at eight reasons why the delectable Danube would be a prime honeymoon spot, and a gaze at some of the gay folk who recently tied the knot in utterly fabulous fashion.
And what’s around the corner here at Lavender? Well, Pride, of course! Throughout all of April, we’re offering the rainbow community a chance to make a case for why they should be the cover star for our June 7 Pride Edition! All you have to do is send us a video, with a maximum length of one minute, telling us why you’d be the best pick for our Pride cover.
Finalists will be voted on by our readers during the first week of May. But that’s not all! If you’re the lucky winner, you’ll not only be on the cover, but you’ll win a cruise trip for two from Celebrity Cruises! So come April, get those cell phones and webcams ready, and prepare to wow us!
