JET features first gay couple

JET® Magazine celebrates “the Diversity of Love” by featuring the first gay male couple in their “Love” section, featuring wedding photos sent in by readers. The most recent issue, on newsstands now, features the third couple since August 2011, but this is the first issue to include a gay male couple.

The Massachusetts-based couple, Dr. Ravi Perry and Paris Prince, who shared with JET® how they met while Ravi was studying for his Ph.D.

“The two gentlemen are a delightful couple that overcame significant obstacles to be together,” said Mitzi Miller, editor in chief, JET®. “Personally and as a policy here at JET® Magazine, we respect and embrace all humanity regardless of sexuality. There is no reason not to include same sex couples in our celebration of Black love.”

“Dr. Tenika Jackson and Nyema Vernon, from Los Angeles, Calif., were the first same sex couple featured in JET®, August 8, 2011; and Davone Madison and Tiffany Jackson, from Queens, N.Y., were featured in the magazine’s March 5, 2011 issue,” writes JET® in a press release promoting the current issue of JET®.

    —————–

    In that case, they should get rid of showing marriage/engagement photos in the “Love” section altogether. :tea:

    NO It is JUST what I Said I am Open Minded to Different strokes FOR Different Folks.
    EveryOne SHOULD do them as they see Fit.
    The Problem IN MY OPINION is this stuff being advertised,thrown at Kids,whether its dolls,Pictures,movies etc.making em Feel like a certain way.
    Society/Internet has Kids growing up so quick and side ways.
    AGAIN,LOVE,luv,Luub who one wants…
    What one Eats Dont Make me SHYTTE.

    Tyler Perry's BRENDEN: Based On The Novel "Push" By Sapphire says:

    They make a handsome couple. I dont like this section of Jet magazine. Theyre very discriminatory. All the couples have these Elite tittles…Criminal judge/Youth Pastor Tyrone Jenkins wed Tiffany Jones a Neurosurgeon from Chicago who graduated from Harvard and once saved a dying gopher on the side of the road. Blah blah blah…My wife and I submitted our pictures to jet when we were married. I guess it didnt help that I was unemployed at the time, and Devry isnt exactly Ivy League, but when she described herself as a Semenologist and all around bad b*tch,,,I knew that our chances of making the final cut were slim to none :shrugs:
