by Jeremy Hooper

Screen Shot 2010-11-15 At 5.57.04 AmHistory was made this week when Thomas Mark Reed and Dante Karl Walkup logged on to Skype and tied the knot, making them the first to participate in a "digital gay wedding" across state lines.

Their “Skype” wedding, which took place in Dallas, Texas, was officiated via teleconference from Washington, D.C., where same-sex marriage is legal.
