Nice to see gay people being treated equally

Imagine my incredulity when I turned to page F6 of my Sunday edition of The Buffalo News. Rather than the typical article about some fresh-faced, usually attractive, and invariably wealthy man and woman who would “honeymoon in Aruba and make their home in Williamsville,” the main article on the Spotlight weddings page was about a gay couple.

After a few moments of stunned surprise, I felt compelled to write and express my heartiest congratulations to The News and particularly its editorial staff for the courage of its convictions.

As a heterosexual member of the society in which I live, I feel that it is long past time that it is understood, and accepted, that gay people have always existed, and always will, and are entitled to the same rights and recognition as anyone else.
