Hey Batesville Guard! Let The Charlotte Observer Teach You How To Respect Gay Readers

While the Arkansas paper, The Batesville Guard continues obstinately refusing to mention a gay man in his partner’s obituary, GLAAD highlights that The Charlotte Observer, North Carolina’s largest and most widely read newspaper, published its first wedding announcements for gay and lesbian couples over the weekend calling these unions what they are—marriages.

See Batesville Guard? It’s not that hard. Just treat others as you’d like to be treated.

Be sure to call The Charlotte Observer at (704) 358-5000 and tell them how much you appreciate their inclusion of gay couples in their pages.
