First Same-Sex Marriage At West Point Chapel
Brenda Sue Fulton (pictured) and Penelope Dara Gnesin were joined in holy matrimony at West Point Saturday.
Fulton, a veteran and the communications director of an organization called Outserve — which represents actively serving gay, lesbian and bisexual military personnel — confirmed in an e-mail to USA TODAY Friday night: “We will be the first same sex couple to wed at the Cadet Chapel at West Point.”
The wedding will be the second gay marriage West Point has hosted. The first was a small, private ceremony last weekend between two of Fulton’s friends in a smaller venue on the campus.
