Synopsis

Bride and Groom are getting married. There are bridesmaids, there are groomsmen. There’s the mother of the bride, the father of the bride, the mother of the groom, the father of the groom, the wedding planner, the officiant, the best man, the maid of honor. You’ve seen it all before. You’ll see it again. A ceremony as old as civilization itself. Gender is not real. Gender is a fiction. But wow, at a wedding, gender is so fucking real.
