JET Magazine Features First Ever Gay Married Couple
For its December 10 issue, JET Magazine, the publication broke with its longstanding tradition of featuring straight couples in its wedding feature to share the love between a gay couple.
Via Roland Matters reports:
A press release from GLAAD makes the welcome announcement:
JET Magazine, the nation’s preeminent African-American biweekly magazine, in its December 10th issue, featured Dr. Ravi Perry and Paris Prince as part of its December JET LOVE wedding series.
Ravi, an Assistant Professor of Political Science at Mississippi State University, and Paris, a licensed real estate broker and anti-discrimination compliance expert, were married in August at their home in Worcester, Massachusetts.
The biweekly feature, which traditionally showcases straight couples, includes a short bio of the couple and explains how the couple fell in love.
“We are excited and honored to have our wedding featured in the historic yet ever-current JET Magazine. Long the hallmark in publishing news, culture, and events pertaining to the Black American experience, Jet’s publishing of our union is historic” said Ravi and Paris.
After doing some digging – Thanks Google! – I found their wedding registry which includes Lacoste bedding ($249), a Sony 32” flat screen ($329.99), Martha Stewart dishes, and other household items. I also discovered Ravi is a member of Kappa Alpha Psi that stood up for his frat brother during the whole “Gay Kappa Wedding” between Nathanael Gay and Robert Brown!
Congrats to the happy couple!!!
