Every hump day, a Philly woman shares her local picks for Woman Crush Wednesday. Today, Stimulus co-founder Amber Hikes with a special couples edition to mark last week’s marriage equality victory in Pennsylvania.
In honor of last week's historic victory in Pennsylvania, I wanted to do a special #WCW couples edition to celebrate enduring love in this amazing city of ours. Here's a list of some of my favorite, inspiring lesbian couples.
Adrienne and Tara
What a power couple! Adrienne and Tara are a gorgeous couple who got married almost 2 years ago. Not only do they have fantastic energy and kind souls, they also inspire me both individually and collectively with their work. Philly is lucky to have them and I feel honored to call them friends.
Leeah and Jessica
Leeah and Jessica are probably the most fun, friendly and open couple I have ever met. They prove that matrimony doesn't have to mean the end of your social life. If marriage looks anything like this couple's exciting relationship, then sign me up!
Meg and Katie
'm so proud to call this lovely married couple my close friends. They're smart, committed to their careers and downright hilarious. They also created some waves a few years ago when they entered an online Cute Couples Contest sponsored by their alma mater, St Joe's. After the university refused to acknowledge their relationship, the girls rallied some serious online support and won the whole contest. Rabble-rousers, I tell ya. My kinda women.
Shanel and Tara
Shanel and Tara are just an amazing example of love and support existing right alongside independence and respect. These two people work together, travel together, play together and have a blast all along the way.
Su and Shara Dae
Beautiful souls inside and out, this couple is recently engaged and just light up a room whenever they walk in. Both Su and Shara Dae are dynamic women, passionate about their community and two of the warmest individuals you could know.
And finally, my #wcw list would not be complete without a spot for the Darling of the Gayborhood, the incomparably stunning Ashley Coleman. If you have to ask why, you either have never met her or you're dead inside. In both cases, I'm concerned. Let this beauty serve you some delicious drinks at Tabu, Tavern on Camac and Voyeur Nightclub. #OhBeStillMyHeart
