Mary Lambert Opens Up on Her Marriage & New Documentary 1946

Mary Lambert has found someone to keep her warm!

The Grammy nominee tied the knot with her partner of four years, Dr. Wyatt Paige Hermansen, at a special Maine ceremony in late October.

"Oh my God... it was amazing," Lambert tells Out. "Wyatt and I really bonded over our Christian upbringings and we're both Episcopalian. To just have a very affirming wedding... it was just so beautiful. All of our friends and family were there. It was truly the best day of my life. I was in my bridal suite crying and not wanting to take my dress off." 

While the couple didn't play Lambert's breakout song "Same Love" at the ceremony, she did allude to new music that she wrote for her special day.

"I wrote a song for Wyatt that I'll be releasing soon," she says. "Also, the songs on 1946 have been really exciting to write and I'm excited to incorporate them into future stuff."

Following her wedding, Lambert has been working around the clock in anticipation of the premiere of her new documentary, 1946: The Mistranslation That Shifted a Culture.

The film follows the story of tireless researchers who trace the origins of the anti-gay movement among Christians to a grave mistranslation of the Bible in 1946. The movie features original music by Lambert.

"It reminded me of when I got the call to do 'Same Love.' I'm meant to do this. The line in 'Same Love' [that says] 'I'm not crying on Sundays' was because I cried every Sunday for a year. It was a time in my life where church was the only thing I had left. That one day having my pastor condemn homosexuality... I mean two weeks later, I attempted suicide. It's not trivial. It's not novelty. This will impact people's lives. Here's this opportunity to really heal something."

Produced and directed by Sharon "Rocky" Roggio, 1946 chronicles the discovery of never-before-seen archives at Yale University which unveil astonishing new revelations and casts significant doubt on any biblical basis for LGBTQIA+ prejudice.

"My dad is an Evangelical minister. I knew at a very young age that there was something different about me. As soon as I found out that I was a lesbian, obviously, that didn't really resonate with my upbringing and the teaching I was presented," Roggio tells Out.

From a young age, Roggio found herself on her own path without family support but determined to stay true to her religious roots.

"I came across this research. The word 'homosexual' wasn't in the Bible until 1946. Now, we have tangible evidence from the men who put this word in the Bible actually saying it isn't accurate. They've corrected it. They've updated it. Everyone should see this movie because the Bible is the biggest book in the world. It impacts us all. I'm very grateful that I found this research and I'm very grateful I can tell this story."
