A Member of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity’s Same Sex Wedding Goes Viral (Video)

Robert Brown and Nathanael Gay, a member of Kappa Alpha Psi, married September 8, 2012. (retraction: in original story it was noted that both men were members of Kappa Alpha Psi, but only Nathanael Gay is a member)

The same-sex marriage issue  is a hot topic in the U.S.  Some are for it and some are not, but no matter what the outcome, we are completely fascinated by the topic for various reasons.  Homosexuality in itself is a conversation, now to bring God into the mix with a wedding is revving things back up again, especially among young people.

In Kentucky, a wedding between a member of Kappa Alpha Psi and his partner in September at the Mansion at Griffin Gate Marriott Resort in Lexington, has gotten the black community on its feet and everyone is  reallllly having a conversation on same-sex marriage.  The video of the two men entitled “Robert + Nathanael 9.8.12″ hit the Internet recently and immediately went viral.

Kappa Alpha Psi members support the couple at their reception with groom and member Nathanael Gay falling in line, September 8, 2012.

The fraternity is an African American male fraternity that was created on the campus of Indiana University in 1911, but they permit anyone to join.  They are known for their smooth moves with a cane that are succinctly syncopated, and choreographed and the fraternity is represented by the colors, red and white.  And as you will see in the video, the grooms were in total agreement of the color scheme.  They didn’t have to think hard on that one.

Of course the nuptials received it’s bad and good comments, but most were congratulatory.  At the time of this report, the video garnered 134,271 views, and of those views 1,967 “likes” and just 100 “dislikes.”  It appears that same sex marriage is more accepted by African Americans than ever thought before, whether you belong to a prominent African American fraternity or not.  It doesn’t seem to matter.  Check out the wedding for yourself and tell us what you think.

(retraction: in the original story, we incorrectly reported that both men were members of Kappa Alpha Psi, but only Nathanael Gay is a member.  Thank you to our loyal readers for noticing our mistake.)

  1. This is one of the most beautiful videos I have seen! Congratulations to Robert and Nathaneal. Your wedding was absolutely classic and gorgeous!! And the sign of LOVE says it all. May blessings and love follow you all the days of your lives.

  2. Only the fella in the red tie is a kappa. Notice that he is the only one in the kappa pictures.

  3. SAD what the world is wrong with you guys do you think your grand parents are happy with you whether they are in heven or on this earth.

  4. All I can say is WOW.. Many may try and speak bad against what you guys have done and represent. It’s very simple, LOVE… The road-map has been laid for others to follow…

    Kudos to the both you..

  5. hate all u want but these dudes had a beautiful wedding…i wish them happiness and peace.

  6. What a blasphemy! What would make 2 grown men do something so retarded. They skipping around, kissing and holding hands like they are the new normal. There is nothing normal about homosexuality and nothing normal about a ridiculous wedding ceremony. There family and friends are all nuts to even be involved with this fiasco. It is all one big mother goose fairy tale. Gay marriage is a complete joke. My cashier said she is going to marry her co-worker just for the benefits because neither one of them is a lesbian, Haha!

  7. ok, if they want to go ahead and do this then fine, good 4 for them ig. What about all of those young men like me who look up to the morals a black greek frat like Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc. has to offer. It definitely put a holt on my decision to even pledge. Knowing that the fraternity may have its stereotypes (like all D9), this effects more than just those 2 IN LOVE DUDEs out of 1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,+ multiplying people in the world. Yes, these men made history, bad history on the frat in my eyes. And yes everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but it is not to come off as negative. This confused the SH*t out of me and a lot of other of my friends. Though the whole Greek era might have been homophobic…THIS IS THE 21st CENTURY. So now kids are going to wonder (because all got damn kids are curious even adults) and say “I want to be GAY when I grow up” -___- r u FUCKING SERIOUS!? And you want people to say “Aww how lovely =)” >:( Yeah FUCKING right. Who would want to even go the Kappa route now after this crap. Okay their in love, Fucking yippee-Kiyae! Now, what about the future of kids, (probably used to be) potential frat members, etc. Their choice to publicize this abomination is fucking over probably the whole frat, d9, and youth. What now? Somebody PLZ tell me…

  8. I’ve learn a few excellent stuff here. Certainly price bookmarking for revisiting. I surprise how much attempt you set to make such a great informative site.
