NBC’s Today Show reverses: gay couples can enter marriage contest

The ‘gotta be hetero‘ rules for Today Show’s “Modern Wedding” have been lifted.


This afternoon NBC and the Today Show did just that. Following a meeting between GLAAD and NBC executives, NBC announced that after listening to community concerns it will open the contest to same-sex couples and extend the submission deadline until Monday, July 12. Couples now have until then to apply. Finalists will be announced later this year and the wedding takes place live on the Today Show this October.

Just because same-sex couples will now be allowed to enter doesn’t mean they stand any chance of winning. I presume viewers will be the ones voting.

I was thinking the same thing John. Let’s hope that at least a same-sex couple get’s some visibility in this contest.
