Wacky Woman To Marry A Building?

A Seattle community rights activist is going to the extreme to try and save a building in her neighborhood: she’s marrying it. Babylonia Aivaz has invited the Seattle public to attend what she calls the “gay wedding” to the building on Sunday. The building is an abandoned warehouse that is in the process of being demolished, according to ABC affiliate KOMO. Aivaz hopes to save the space for a community center. “Yes, I’m in love with a 107 year old building! Yes, ITS A GAY MARRIAGE! How is that possible? Well there must obviously be a deeper story,” Aivaz wrote on her Facebook invitation to the wedding.” w/ photo + video
