Wedded gays = good biz: At least New York paper notices, even if senate doesn't

by Jeremy Hooper

From today's New York Times:

This month, under pressure from gay rights groups, the “Today” show on NBC welcomed same-sex couples to compete in its annual wedding contest. Also this month, Brides, a Condé Nast publication, ran its first feature about a same-sex wedding, depicting the union of one of the magazine’s photo editors and her longtime girlfriend.

Martha Stewart Weddings, a publication of Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia, had already broken precedent in its winter 2010 issue, with a pictorial that showed Jeremy Hooper and Andrew Shulman stomping on glass and sharing a kiss.

Both magazines played it straight, focusing on menus and decorations, with no mention beyond the obvious of the couples’ orientations. “This is a part of the mix going forward,” said Millie Martini Bratten, the editor-in-chief of Brides. “The world is changing.”

So not only does yours truly (and yours truly's husband) get a lovely mention, but it comes right after the "Today" show thing that began right here on this website. Not gonna lie: That feels good.

And congrats to Kirsten and Maria Palladino, the focus of the article. Be sure to check out there online same-sex wedding magazine, Equally Wed.
