But the "Northern Exposure" episode titled "I Feel the Earth Move" was the first gay wedding in an Emmy Award winning drama series. It was blacked out in several southern states including Jeff Session's Alabama. The episode was boycotted by the Catholic Church who advised all "good" Catholics not to watch. It's one of our favorite episodes because it looks on gay marriage as a natural expression of love for one another. Barry Corbin who plays the ex-astronaut, richest man in town and a "Republican to the core" makes up an excuse not to be in town for Ron and Erick's wedding. What happens next is heart warming and funny. We've come along way in 23 years. Not going to let the "Trumpites" take it away from us. Art and I will celebrate our 3rd wedding anniversary in May. Together 18 years this Easter season.
