“Despite their concerns about the patriarchal confines of marriage, actor / singer Lea DeLaria & editrix Chelsea Fairless of Brooklyn, New York are pleased to announce their engagement. No date has been set for the impending nuptials but it’s safe to say that it will be the event of the season, or, a total shit show.”

The actress also confirmed that Jesse Tyler Ferguson will be the best man, while Sandra Bernhard will officiate the wedding.

DeLaria, who now has had number stage and screen appearances, including her standout role of prison inmate Big Boo in the hit Netflix series, will also be honored in Chicago on Valentine’s Day with the Equality Illinois Freedom Award.
