Lesbians soccer moms are taking over the South! And real change is coming.. it’s interesting to see that the mainstream media is starting to realize that the gay community isn’t all white, rich and living in LA or NY. The truth is being told through the numbers in the most recent Census. There are actually a lot of gay and lesbian couples of color raising kids in the Bible Belt – shocking!! And get this – we want to go to church!
CNN takes a further look at same-sex couples in the South and profiles a family headed by two soccer moms in Jacksonville, Florida (watch below). The segment also goes deeper into why Jacksonville and other Southern U.S. cities are appealing for gay & lesbian couples. One of the reasons why our families are moving to these cities- they have more welcoming church congregations, like those led by Pastor Valerie Williams (pictured above).
What I do not appreciate is that the CNN reporter felt he had to go out of his way to find an anti-gay black preacher to be included in the story. Was that really necessary?
