The December 10th issue of Jet features the magazine’s first male gay couple in its popular weddings section. Ravi Perry and Paris Prince have the honor of being the first. According to the Advocate, Jet featured its first lesbian couple in 2011.
Gay rights advocacy group GLAAD issued a statement about the feature: “This is yet another opportunity to applaud Jet magazine for continuing to highlight the diversity of the African-American community and to urge other media outlets to recognize that it’s these stories that help grow acceptance of our community and give a voice to LGBT people of color who are too often invisible in the media.”
Perry and Prince say they are honored to be a part of Jet’s historic legacy.
