gay wedding[edit]

It might be just me, but why is this term supposed to be any idiomatic? -- Liliana 14:24, 14 August 2011 (UTC)

Dunno. I'd ask the same about gay marriage. Equinox 16:48, 14 August 2011 (UTC)
See also Special:PrefixIndex/gay. If we don't already have one, we need a sense at gay#Adjective "of, relating to or aimed at homosexuals". I would delete this specific nominated entry, and would be happy to nominate/comment on nominations of some of these other terms. Mglovesfun (talk) 16:41, 15 August 2011 (UTC)
Added the sense at [[gay#Adjective]].​—msh210 (talk) 17:01, 15 August 2011 (UTC)
At least for marriage the term refers to the legality, so there's a more-than-SoP argument. A gay wedding could be held even if it wasn't recognized. The only confusion (apart from the dated sense of gay) would be whether it was the couple or the full audience who are homosexual, but this can be resolved pragmatically. Delete.

Delete. (If the community decides to keep it, it needs a sense for merry weddings: bgc has many hits for the phrase.)​—msh210 (talk) 17:01, 15 August 2011 (UTC)

By way of comparison, queer wedding and queer marriage are attested on Google Books. Mglovesfun (talk) 07:55, 18 August 2011 (UTC)
