First Look: Teen Gay Wedding

3.8.2013

Are David Harris and Tre'Darrius Anderson the country's youngest African-American gay couple to marry?

David Harris and Tre'Darrius Anderson, both 19, were married in Washington, DC January 18, 2013, and they may be one of the youngest gay couples to legally wed. At least that's what The Scoop seems to think. The young couple from Tennessee, who tied the knot in front of the Lincoln Memorial, will also be featured on an upcoming episode of My Teenage Gay Wedding.

As described on the My Teenage Gay Wedding page:

David and Tre’Darrius, both 19, are young, black, and gay, and getting married in not-so-progressive Memphis. But the odds are stacked against them. Once very popular, David’s friends ostracized him after he came out in high school. Neither mother is responding to the wedding invite. And their only adult supporter, Tre’s uncle Theo, thinks they’re too young to marry. When flaky groomsman Rico says he might have to work on the wedding day, the couple is crushed. The biggest obstacle, though, is making the marriage legal. That means going to Washington, DC, but Tre must first get over his fear of flying!
