Sexually fluid actor Nico Tortorella got married over the weekend to his longtime partner Bethany Meyers, a fitness and lifestyle entrepreneur, who identifies as a gay woman. The two had been in a polyamorous relationship for 11 years before tying the knot.
“Just married. For real,” Tortorella shared on Instagram alongside a series of photos of their wedding day.
One of the things that stands out from the pair’s nuptials are their outfits. Tortorella walked down the aisle in a white dress! We’re loving his acceptance of such a daring look, and hope that his androgynous wedding fashion paves the way for more men to take risks on their big day.
Now this is a couple who deserves to be on the cover of Vogue for their gender-bending, androgynous ways.
Tortorella and Meyers shared the inspiration for the looks to our friends over at Them:
the looks are everything we’ve ever dreamed of. genderbending ensembles designed by our dear friend andrew morrison. timeless androgynous paraphernalia mimicking romanesque sculpture that fluidly blends masculine and feminine. in this relationship, we both wear the pants and the dress. we put on our faces and machinery, finally topping each other off in crowns. duh, we wore crowns. not for the gag of it all, but because it feels like something we’ve done in the past, so we had to keep the tradition alive. in this life’s iteration, this is, in fact, our royal wedding.
The pair also have a word to their haters, who don’t understand or approve of their relationship.
Here we are, the day I dreamed of yet not the day I imagined, and I couldn’t be happier. Plenty won’t understand it, something I’m gradually learning to accept. For others, it will help open their eyes to different ways to love. And for some, our story will make them feel less alone. It will give them strength to ask for the things they want and need in a partner. As traditional as we may appear on the outside, we are far from it on the inside.
Congrats, you two!
