I’m a lumberjack and I’m okay

The only thing that will be more confused than this is the Anglican Church theological commission’s report on why it is perfectly normal:

Here come the brides… transvestite groom cuts the cake as ‘Susan’ after taking wedding vow as Add an ImageIan

With long blonde hair, flowing ivory wedding dress and proud smile, Susan looks every inch the blushing bride.

Only Susan is really Ian Platt, 51, who performed the incredible feat of being both the bride and groom at his own wedding.

The transvestite father-of-three appeased his future in-laws by sporting a conservative dark grey morning suit for the registry office ceremony.

But after tying the knot with fiancee Lisa, 42, in a traditional wedding he left to perform a quick costume change.

And by the time guests arrived at a hotel for the wedding reception Mr Platt had transformed himself into a radiant bride.

The 100 guests roared with approval as the two brides cut their two wedding cakes – one saying ‘Ian and Lisa’ and the other saying ‘Susan and Lisa.’

The newly weds also had their first dance as brides and gave speeches thanking family and friends before jointly throwing a bouquet of flowers over their heads towards guests.Add an Image

Mrs Platt, a mother-of-three, from Leeds, West Yorks, said: ‘Some people might not understand our relationship but it works perfectly for us.

‘I truly believe that people should be themselves and enjoy life, and that is what Ian, Susan and I do each and every day. There are three people in this marriage – Ian, Lisa and Susan – but I wouldn’t have it any other way.’

Mrs Platt said: ‘I met him as Ian first, he was really nice – he would always say he was quiet as Ian. Then he said I should meet Susan. I just thought it was brilliant. She was so confident and had the best legs I’d ever seen on a girl, let alone a man.

‘Ian said that when he was a boy he loved dressing up in women’s clothes and had gradually developed his alter ego – Susan.

‘She was confident and flamboyant and loved dolling herself up for a night on the transvestite scene in Leeds and going out with her transvestite girlfriends.’

  1. Reminds me of that Johnny Cash song – “A Boy Named Sue”. The song made more sense than this “marriage” though.
