fflPfioetiMiiigs It's not just about the bod Susie Buck's passion for cooking led her to catering, and left her with plenty of ideas about how to plan a successful wedding reception By Arnold Wayne Jones Staff Writer Susie Buck has spent 10 years as a chef— six of them as a caterer — but even she wouldn't try to handle one wedding: Her own. Three years ago, Buck and her long-time part- ner, Kathy Jack, decided to have a commitment ceremony in Hawaii. It wasn't a large affair — about 15 guests, including Buck's sister and niece — but a sit-down dinner with multiple courses would have been impossibly stressful for Buck to coordinate while she was preparing to walk down the aisle. In the end, she says, it was a tremendous relief to have everything taken care of. "Whenever planning something like a com- mitment ceremony, people make themselves crazy," says Buck. But hiring a caterer is more than just about having someone else do the cook- ing; it's about relieving the stress that comes ...

mm uieotgs GAY WEDDINGS Continued from page 2 about 40 percent from men, with even some transgendered couples. But she says the products and services apply just as well for either. But with all the innova- tions, Kathryn still does fWi not consider the con- , L cept of gay weddings — and a website cater- ing to them — all that radical; it is more about education and accepting all people equally. She plainly refers to the sites as "wedding boutiques," and says they even assist straight people who want to know how to behave appropriately when it comes to gay commitment ceremonies — what to wear, where to sit, what to bring, what to call it? "These are questions that come from our clients, and a lot of the best questions come from straight friends and family," Kathryn says. "They ask us what are we to do? They are trying to apply the rules they know in a good way." In Washington, Kathryn even operates a tradi- tional storefront bridal shop. Recently, she was helping a straight woman fi...

DPdfle uuedfllfios CANADA Continued on from Page 3 monkey wrench into the works. Canadian law requires substantial proof of divorce, including an original (not photocopy) of a decree dissolv- ing a marriage. The right to marry must then be expressly authorized — a process that can take from four to six weeks, says Dodds. One couple who didn't use his services the first time ended up having to leave Canada and return after the divorce was recognized. But he has many more positive stories than negative ones. "The eldest couples we had to get married — one was 76 and one was 80. The younger one had a terminal illness and wanted to do this because they had lived together for over 40 years," he says. "It was very heart-warming." They've also helped coordinate some kooky experiences! "We handle theme weddings, like one Australian couple that wanted to exchange vows while coming down a water slide," he says. They were able to find and indoor slide and make it happen. When he first started ...

dossier Molly Shannon goes to the Dog Sometimes a dog movie isn't about a dog at all. Sometimes it's just about the "idea" of a dog. And if that sounds confusing, then read on. "The Year of the Dog," the latest comedy from queer writer/director/producer Mike White ("Chuck and Buck," "School of Rock") is about how our beloved pets influence our lives. Molly Shannon ("Saturday Night Live") stars as a woman who loses her dog companion, a pooch named Pencil, and in turn goes on a life-transforming journey. Along the way she In the Molly Shannnon meets Peter Sarsgaard, Regina King, John C. Reilly and Laura Dern, as well as some as yet- unnamed comedians in cameo roles. It'll be fine as long as she doesn't adopt a new pound puppy named Cujo. The movie begins shooting in Los Angeles in June, and audiences will be able to fetch tickets in 2007.

localnews 2 area groups holding coming out workshops Collin County Gay and Lesbian Alliance, Valiente working with local Human Rights Campaign program to offer seminars By David Webb Staff Writer Two local GLBT groups are kicking off com- ing out workshops that will coincide with the cel- ebration of gay Pride in June. Collin County Gay and Lesbian Alliance and Valiente leaders announced the debut of the workshops in a statement this week. The Collin County group's workshop begins on June 8, and Valiente, a Latino group, starts its workshop on May 25. The groups are conducting the workshops in cooperation with the Human Rights Campaign's local Coming Out Project. The project began sponsoring the coming out workshops last year at Hope Counseling Center.

WORKSHOPS Continued from Page 6 The coming out workshops are designed for GLBT people in various stages of coming out and also their straight allies, Boarman said. "Allies serve an important role in the process of learning to live uninhibited," Boarman said. "The growth they experience in the workshop and the validation they provide really empower LGBT participants to make their next steps." Renee McGee said that although she consid- ered herself out already, the workshop had helped her improve the quality of her life. "When I used to come out to people, I used to pull them aside and tell them as though I had can- cer," McGee said. "I have found a freedom to live more openly and not be apologetic about it. And people really show more respect for me now that I have that kind of confidence," she said. Boarman said studies show that support for GLBT-friendly legislation and policies doubles when a person knows a gay person. "Almost 50 percent of the population reports that they do not ...
