Social justice, arts and politics, life in New York City

All Hubby Hubby in Georgetown

Liberal, hippie-loving corporation Ben & Jerry’s joins the marriage equality festivities today. Keith Spangler and Andreas Vellios will enter the Georgetown Ben & Jerry’s Scoop Shop as bachelors, but leave as legal husbands. Hooray, Spangler and Vellios! Hooray, D.C.!

According to DCist:

Rev. Lance Orndorff will officiate the ceremony, but the couple will also be celebrating with the actual Jerry — Jerry Greenfield, the co-founder of Ben & Jerry’s — who plans to be in attendance to offer a toast and say a few words about his company’s history of promoting social justice.

I love the way that Ben & Jerry’s has never shied away from the company’s progressive politics, like re-christening the name of my personal flavor, Chubby Hubby, to “Hubby Hubby.” A little bit of corporate citizenship goes a long way.
