Melissa Harris-Perry, Thomas Roberts Discuss Gay Families: VIDEO


On Saturday's edition of Melissa Harris-Perry's MSNBC show, the host invited a panel, including colleague and openly gay journalist Thomas Roberts, to discuss the changing definition of family here in 21st century America.

In addition to chatting about the politics of adoption, income disparities among racial, sexual and gendered demographics and conservative attacks on the new normal, the group also spent a fair amount of time discussing same-sex marriage. Roberts, who recently married husband Patrick Abner, had plenty of insight on that particular topic.

Watch the videos AFTER THE JUMP.

  2. Thomas Roberts is an outstanding spokesperson for LGBT rights, a role model for LGBT youth, and a formidable obstacle to career homophobes attempting to dominate the airwaves with hate speech.

  5. P Dean. It's probably because they are flash videos, which cause problems for most mobile phones.
