On a recent trip through the Atlanta airport, newsstand after newsstand was blanketed with repeat images of heterosexuality: Brad and Angelina; Tom, Katie and Suri; and Barack and Michelle. Over and over and over again, they were the there: the happy heterosexual couples and families.
What about GLBT couples and families? Ellen and Portia, among other well-known couples, would make a great addition to the wall. So would single individuals or people who are older. Instead, it was all about 30s and 40s-ish couples with their love on display…. which is fine, but when that’s the only thing on display, it perhaps needs some attention. After all, GLBT individuals, older individuals, and people who are single might like to see themselves represented, too.
