My friend Shakrah got married at the courthouse here in Berlin, with immediate family only.
And her band, who showed up to play a surprise socially distanced number to the newlyweds! Of course the courthouse was a huge beautiful stone castle! It was a freezing cold day but Shakrah and L. looked incredibly chic and elegant as they danced outside.
Shakrah’s style is 1920s and she was an absolute Deco Belle!
Of course I wish I could have been with her. But we do what we can to honor our loved ones as things are. I am so glad I got to see her in her wedding dress and watch her and her husband L. cut their cake.
Then we organized this zoom posing session for the kids’ winter break in March.
Of course, whether kids can even go to kita, or go back to kita, is constantly in flux. Sadie has been able to take the kids to the country village home of a friend much of this last year, so they have had incredible experiences with nature and animals and wildlife. Her photos and videos of the lilacs blooming, the kids with ponies, and the German countryside have been incredibly sustaining to me as I have spent this year-and-change indoors.
Vampirina requested a graveyard background for one of the drawings.
I did my best! I am so grateful to know and love Sadie Lune and her brood, and her older child’s co-parents. You can see Sadie’s work and social here: website, insta, twitter. Drawing Sadie when she was pregnant with the younger here!
As always,I am so grateful to my Patreon Patrons, whose monthly financial support lets me keep documenting Queer Berlin while I work safely at home.
