Beloved Washington DC Trans Advocate Ruby Corado Marries Longtime Boyfriend; DC Mayor Vincent Gray Gives Her Away
On Saturday, October 18th true love united as noted DC trans advocate Ruby Corado married her longtime boyfriend David Walker in a beautiful ceremony at the Mayflower Renaissance Hotel in DC. She was walked down the aisle by DC Mayor Vincent Gray, who has been a longtime supporter of the transsexual and transgender communities.
On Sunday she left a message on her Facebook wall:
Dreams Do Come True!
My whole life, I have been told that I was not supposed to love or be loved.
I was not supposed to love myself because I was different( Trans, indigenous, dark haired, immigrant, HIV Positive, fat, short, you name it). I was made to believe that no one could love me back because I was different.
Yesterday, life proved everyone wrong.
I love myself more than ever because I am SOMEBODY. My husband showed the world that it is ok to love me even though I am different.
My city's mayor Vince Gray walked me down the aisle and showed the world once again that he stands for love. My friends and Family showed me, that I am SOMEBODY, and they stand with me in sickness and in health until death do us part.
Today as I lay next to my husband, I want to tell my friends, clients, supporters, followers and the entire world that It is ok to be different and that no matter what anyone says, YOU ARE WORTHY OF LOVE AS MUCH AS I AM
Never stop dreaming; never stop believing because dreams do come true.
A Million Thanks To Everyone Who Shared This Special Moment in person or from a distance, I felt your love
Love For All, Ruby Corado-Walker
