A British woman is making headlines due to her love affair with a 91-year-old chandelier she calls Lumiere, [named after the chandelier in Disney’s animated classic, Beauty and the Beast].

Amanda Liberty, 35, who changed her last name from Whittaker during a prior long-distance relationship with the Statue of Liberty, is ready to finally settle down with the light of her life, the Mirror reports.
Liberty, of Leeds, who identifies as an objectum sexual, is putting the spotlight on the little-known attraction to inanimate objects, according to the outlet.
The bride-to-be said she has been in an open relationship with multiple light fixtures, but decided to get hitched to Lumiere, which she regards as female.
So she’s a lesbian objectophiliac.
Apparently the LGBTIQCAPGNGFNBA community needs to include one more letter to it’s alphabet soup of gender and sexual orientation.
In case you weren’t aware, that ever-expanding acronym refers to Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Intersex, Queer, Curious, Asexual, Pansexual, Gender-non-conforming, Gender-Fluid, Non-binary, and Androgynous. And now, of course, we must add O for “objectophilia.” So LGBTIQCAPGNGFNBAO. Sure, why not? Love is love.
Liberty told the Mirror that she is ready to make a long-term commitment with her chandelier lover.
“I’m determined to have this commitment ceremony, to prove that I’m here for Lumiere and that my love is going to last,” she said.
“I restore the chandeliers in my spare time so they can continue to interest people as they like to be the center of attention. That’s what they like and it’s the energy I get from them,” Liberty continued.
“I’m not sure what dress I’ll wear and will invite those closest to us. I’ll also be buying matching wedding rings for Lumiere and myself,” she added. “I know a lot of people think my attraction to chandeliers is strange, but I’m not crazy.”

No way. Who said falling madly in love with a chandelier is crazy? They’re just ignorant haters who know nothing about the LGBTIQCAPGNGFNBAO community’s gloriously diverse rainbow of identities.
Courtesy of Twitter, here are some other people who identify as objectum sexuals:
