Wedding: Joe Buches and Glen Abrams
Wedding: Joe Buches and Glen Abrams Joe Buches was appointed as artistic director of the Philadelphia Gay Men's Chorus in 2004 - and found much more than a new creative outlet through the venture. Buches met PGMC member Glen Abrams that year, and a decade later, the two were married. The couple was joined Oct. 11 at Lutheran Church of the Holy Communion, where Buches serves as musical director. The men, both 45, live in Northern Liberties. Buches is a native of Bethlehem and Abrams hails from Copley, Ohio, moving here to work for the City of Philadelphia in 1998. He now serves as the director of sustainable communities for the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society. Their initial common interest, music, proved to be an important one, Buches said. "We're both very into music. His family is very musical so I fit right in with them and him with mine. We clicked right away," Buches said. "We had talked a lot about marriage before but wanted to wait until it was legal here," Buches said. "So shortly after Pennsylvania passed it, we decided to get married and decided it was important to have our friends and family there with us." The couple hosted an intimate dinner for family first, followed by the ceremony and reception for a larger crowd, all of which was held at the church. Now that they're legally wed, Buches said, their relationship has taken on a new dynamic. "It actually does feel different," he said.
