World Eyes T.O.Nuptials

"Media outlets ranging from Newsweek to The New York Times and Ms. to Mother Jones had representatives among the 80 reporters and photographers who covered yesterday's wedding between two gay couples in Toronto.

There were media representatives from as far away as Virginia, New Mexico, California and even Japan, said Brad Salavitch, media relations coordinator for Metropolitan Community Church."
Michael Clement
The Toronto Sun (Jan.15, 2001)

 

 

"To describe the Jan. 14 nuptials of two gay couples as a media frenzy would be the understatement of the year ... Photographs of the wedding were featured in just about every daily newspaper across Canada and throughout the US and overseas. In Toronto, three of the four dailies highlighted the event on their front pages ... many newspapers added editorials about the gay wedding to their news coverage."
