Written by Kevin Bourassa Joe Varnell.
Published by McClelland & Stewart Ltd., 2002.


Told in their own words, this is the true story of the first gay couple in the world to be issued a marriage certificate and their fight for government recognition. Kevin Bourassa and Joe Varnell made international news headlines and human rights history in January 2001 when they became the first gay couple anywhere in the world to be issued a government marriage certificate. They did this according to a well-established Christian tradition — the reading of the banns — which has been incorporated into provincial law in Canada.

Just Married is the story of two people who chose to make a life together and sought the support of both church and state for their marriage. They believe they have taken part in an event that will expand human rights, not just for Canadians, but for citizens, families, and communities everywhere.
