While on an official trip to Vietnam sponsored by the State Department's U.S. Speaker Program, Supreme Court Justice (and liberal hero) Ruth Bader Ginsburg officiated at the vow renewal ceremony of U.S. Ambassador Ted Osius and his husband Clayton Bond. The two were legally married in Canada in 2006, and Osius told The Washington Blade that they used the same vows at the small affair held in their Hanoi home.
Osius, who is one of six openly gay American ambassadors, and his husband have two adopted children. Speaking of the ceremony, he said:
"We thought it might be meaningful not only to us, but to the LGBT community in Vietnam."
Congrats to the happy family!
