Gay couples who are married now are legit because of all the laws that have taken place. I remember a case I read about where a gay was arrested because of living with another man. Same-sex couples have come a long way. Yes, they should have the same rights, but some rights may take more time due to circumstances. We have been exposed to some same-sex couples on TV from many years ago who are still visible and still gay. Are we ready to see more of the same in different sizes, shapes, and colors? Now if its family members we are already aware of a cousin, brother, or ex husband even. I'm sure with all they have been through, family members don't want to see them hurt. There are groups in college that lets a gay person communicate their feelings about being gay, and at the same time meeting new people and creating fun activities that other groups can check out if that group chooses to do so. There's a lot of information about the gay community.
