The Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) today announced that 1,049 daily U.S. newspapers now accept wedding announcements from gay and lesbian couples -- a more than fifteen-fold increase since August 18, 2002, when The New York Times opened its Weddings/Celebrations pages to gay and lesbian couples following conversations with GLAAD leadership.
Among the 2008 Announcing Equality campaign's other measures:
An estimated 83 percent of all U.S. newspaper consumers read a paper that accepts wedding announcements from same-sex couples.
All 50 states and the District of Columbia have newspapers that print announcements for gay and lesbian couples. All but three of the nation's top 100 media markets are home to newspapers with inclusive announcement policies.
All daily newspapers in 9 states and the District of Columbia print wedding announcements for same-sex couples: Alaska, Colorado, Connecticut, Hawaii, Massachusetts, Maine, New Jersey, Rhode Island and Vermont. California and New York come close to being 100 percent inclusive, with only one daily newspaper in each state that will not print such announcements.
In Tennessee, the state with the lowest percentage of inclusive papers, one out of every three papers accepts announcements from gay and lesbian couples. Only 339 of the 1,049 papers have actually received an announcement from a same-sex couple to print.
This is just more evidence, in my view, that the religious right is throwing money down the toilet opposing the right of GLBT people to marry. What they should be doing is helping these relationships succeed. Clearly, they have lost their culture war and it will only get worse. They seem to be in denial and can't face reality.
