The "Let's Get Gay Married!" Commentfic Meme was a slash and femslash comment meme celebrating the legalization of same-sex marriage in New York in June 2011.

It was hosted by bree_black and received at least 177 fills in over 60 fandoms.

Introduction

In celebration of New York's legalization of same-sex marriage, let's write fic about weddings!

All same-sex pairings welcome, any rating, any fandom. Write about proposals, engagements, wedding planning, or saying "I do," in a place where same-sex marriage is legal now, or somewhere the fight's still on. Have characters elope, tie the knot at City Hall, make their vows on a spaceship, or whatever else strikes your fancy, officially recognized or otherwise. Basically, anything remotely marriage-related goes.

[...]

PS: Title of meme is from a tongue-in-cheek expression that was going around a few years back, and was not intended to be limiting. All same-sex pairings welcome, and that INCLUDES FEMSLASH.
