THE SHOT – Initially The Batesville Guard apologized for not mentioning Terrance James in his lover’s obituary and said they would run a reprint and donate money to a charity of James’ choice. So good job, Queerty—right? Well… that was before the Guard decided to publish the above full-page defending their initial actions. Oh Lordy.
GLAAD suggests you “contact the publisher and let her know that the paper does in fact owe Mr. James an apology, and should re-run the obituary, including recognition of the surviving partner:”
