Bride wed her soul mate - a transgender man

It was June of 2010 and Kyra Byrne attended her first San Francisco Pride celebration. The workers' rights advocate had moved from the East Coast the previous year, and the last thing on her mind was a relationship.

At a Michael Jackson dance party that broke out spontaneously in the Mission, a random man grabbed her hand.

"There's the cutest guy over there, come meet him with me," he said. Kyra reluctantly played wingman, and shared an awkward moment with these two strangers. She then fled back to her friends.

It could have ended there. But as soon as "the cutest guy" laid eyes on Kyra, he was done.

"I have a feeling about that girl," Sawyer Steele told his friends. In his words, "I instantly became obsessed with her."

Soon, Kyra and Sawyer were talking, and then dancing together. Kyra noticed Sawyer's "Trans March" button from earlier in the day.

"I'm trans!" he blurted out.
