Jared Milrad, author of the newly released “So, You Want to Get (Gay) Married”
Jared Milrad, co-wrote this book with his husband Nathan Johnson– the history making same-sex couple featured in Hillary Clinton’s viral presidential campaign commercials (“Getting Started,” “Equal”) with 10 million+ views worldwide.
In this humorous and witty guidebook for the unhitched, the couple shares practical tips on how to tie the same-sex knot, while barely remaining sane and relationship savvy along the way. Released on October 25, the book is NOW available at howtogetmarried.com, on Amazon, Kindle and in bookstores on demand.
At a time when many members of the LGBTQ community are fearful about what’s next for our community, Jared Milrad wrote this book not only to share his story as a same-sex couple, but to inspire LGBTQ youth and allies to be open, proud, and vocal advocates for our civil equality.
In the wake of Hillary Clinton’s electoral loss, it is important to discuss what she was fighting for – particularly as it relates to equality and discrimination – and why their story, and stories like it, should be used as leverage for future progress.
In 2015, Jared and Nate became the first openly gay couple to appear in a major party presidential campaign announcement.
They’re proud of that historic achievement – and the responsibility that comes with it.
They wrote the book in part because having LGBTQ role models that are relatable to young people is incredibly important – and there are simply very few public figures currently serving that role.

The Future of Jared Milrad
In addition, Jared is also getting ready to release of his brand new short film “Office Party” (due out online in December). “Office Party” tells the story of Tom (Josh Trant ) and Jack (Jared Milrad ), two co-workers who, tired of the same old corporate routine, plan a forgettable surprise.The short is intended to raise awareness about the urgent public health epidemic of gun violence and mental illness in the United States. It is an urgent reminder of the danger that lurks just beneath the surface, with more than 33,000 people killed every year by gun violence in the United States.Ultimately, Jared Milrad’s goal is to build a world that is more engaged in public service, more committed to our shared humanity, and more conscious of the opportunities and challenges that await in a more inclusive, equal, and just future.
