Thomas Roberts Interviews First Gay Male Couple Featured in JET Magazine's Wedding Announcements: VIDEO


Last week I posted about Dr. Ravi Perry and Paris Prince, the first gay male couple to appear in JET magazine as a feature in their 'weddings' section. Today, Thomas Roberts interviewed the couple about their history-making announcement.

Said Prince:"It's an exhilarating experience...I think Darwin would be amazed at the evolution that's occurring now."

Roberts also asks the couple their thoughts on stereotypes of masculinity within the African-American community, the Supreme Court's recent announcement, and Justice Antonin Scalia's comments equating sodomy with murder.

  4. I love it when couples step forward and show the world the true diversity of the gay community. This couple breaks a lot of stereotypes and I wish them the best in their life ahead.

  6. Jet is not known for intellectual depth nor progressive attitudes. It is a super-Reader's Digest compendium for people who won't or can't read in-depth news. So the fact that it features this news about two fine men is amazing. The news will get to people whose world views are limited, and seeing a handsome, successful couple of Black gay men in a committed relationship that is now also legal may move things forward. Bravo, and good luck.

  7. God Bless them and their marriage, may they live long happy lives together. We in the black community need to open up and talk about this kind of thing and stop pretending that blacks are not gay. If we do this we can open talks with LGBT people and others about stopping AIDS and HIV in the African American community. We need to take out heads out of the sand people and deal with these issues that are impacting our lives.
