The picture above showing this unlikely pair in Washington getting a marriage licence like many other same-sex couples on Thursday December 6 around 1:30am has gone viral on the internet.
The picture shows Larry Duncan, 56, and Randy Shepherd, 48, as they apply for a marriage license in the King County Administration Building.
Originally from Dallas, Texas, they told Schenker they moved to Washington 7 years ago because it was more gay friendly.
The soft-spoken couple from North Bend, who have been together for 11 years, finally reached the front of the line about 1:30 a.m. As they took an oath in front of a representative of King County, Schenker captured the simple moment with a master’s eye. She said that as part of documenting the event, she was looking for a picture that would challenge stereotypes.
Somewhere NOM is muttering to themselves, saying "Oh, $&%*^(!"
