YES!

NBC's Today show has changed its rules for their annual wedding contest and now same-sex couples are allowed to apply for the Modern Wedding Contest to get married on-air!

Jarrett Barrios of the not always useless GLAAD says:

"We're thrilled that `Today' show's `Modern Wedding Contest' now recognizes what most fair-minded Americans have already concluded — a wedding celebrates love and commitment, whether the spouses are straight or gay."

For the contest, viewers choose all of the wedding details as well as which couple will participate out of the 4 couples NBC chooses as finalists.

GLAAD pointed out to the network that same-sex couples could still have their ceremony in New York with the Today show, but get their marriage license from another state. NBC says in a statement:

"Moving forward, we ensure that our future wedding contests will be inclusive to all couples."

Amazing!!

    Take that all you ignorant people who don't know what the true definition of love and marriage is.

    Liberals are very funny people

    I just sent in a letter of protest. I explained that at one time I was for same sex marriages but that Perez Hilton changed my mind. The fact that Perez, a gay man is for same sex marriages but would condemn other people for their relationships (older woman/younger man) makes me feel that until ALL couples, regardless of AGE (only those of age legally), SEX, WEIGHT, RELIGION etc are allowed their freedoms, the gays don't deserve theirs.

    DOWN WITH GAY MARRIAGE!!!!!

    Another Establishment that "CAVES" in to an orginization that doesn't agree with. I doubt you will ever see a Gay couple Wed on Today… the American People DON'T, that's right, DON'T want to see Gays get married, especially on National TV. This Nation has gotten to damned Politically Correct.

    cool.

    Re: buck – Says the closeted homosexual. Buck, honestly, you only comment on the gay stuff. Why is that????? Hmmmmm?? Could it be that you're GAY?!!! BTW, if you're not gay, then you're really weird because you obsess on this subject. Some people are gay Buck. Including republicans. OMG, I know! Horrible right? Pffftttt, get over yourself honey. *Smooches*

    wrong



  13. 13

    THIS IS SICK. HOMOSEXUALITY IS NASTY AND IMMORAL



  14. 14

    MAYBE THEY SHOULD ALSO OPEN THE CONTEST UP TO ROBBERS, RAPISTS, THIEVES AND SERIAL KILLERS.

    Re: MarioMonjack
    Silly boy, they already do… that would be STRAIGHT PEOPLE!!!



  16. 16

    Why do straight people care so much? it doesn't effect/affecxt their live one itty bitty bit, and it doesn't cost them 1 penny. only insecure people need to keep other down to make themselve feel equal, and that's fact not opinion.



  17. 17

    Does it matter that they open it up to gay couples? You know, they will NEVER win. The voting is done by the home audience and the audience is all of America. I can not see America voting on a gay couple. NBC might put on a gay couple, and NBC, they will rig the votes, so the gays are not thrown off right away, but they will NEVER EVER WIN.

    How dare you get snippy about GLAAD, you who through your mindless slobbering over any young shirtless guy and your endless trivialization of gay issues has put gay rights back 1,000 years? One notices how you haven't had a single post about Outfest, a major LA gay event. Too serious for you? Too quality for you?



  19. 19

    YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Re: _Alice_ – Maybe he is just sick to death about Gay Rights Maybe he is sick to death of Perez fluttering about like a Queen in heat about gay rights. Hating on the girlfriends of any good looking STRAIGHT guy. Sick of Perez calling all the females Stupid, Fat, Ugly, No Talent, Sluts, Whores etc. because he wants to ass rim their boyfriend a-hole. Maybe just maybe he is sick of Perez screaming Equality while he degrades everyone else?

    I came to this site PRO GAY, and Perez is making me HATE the flaming gays who speak of equality but are the most brutal, judgemental, racist F's on this earth. So do me a favor sister, die.

    Re: DRINNY

    Actually marriage is about money. Right?



  22. 22

    Very Nice!

    THIS IS THE BEST IDEA EVER.
    THE TODAY SHOW HAS BEEN BORING FOR YEARS AND WHO WATCHES IT ANYMORE.?
    MATT AND MERIDETH SITTING THERE YOU KNOW THEY HATE EACH OTHER AND HOW IN THE WORLD DID ANN CURRY EVER GET ANY JOB> SHE IS LIKE……..ASLEEP.
    THE IDEA OF A SAME SEX COUPLE MARRIAGE WOULD REVIVE THEM.
    I ALWAYS REMEMBER KATIE COURIC INTERVIEWING A WOMAN WHO'S CHILD HAD JUST BEEN KILLED AND KATIE ASKED HER….
    "HOW DO YOU FEEL RIGHT NOW"?
    I NEVER WATCHED AGAIN AND RELAIZED HOW KATIE COURIC HAS NO BRAIN.
