My first reaction was similar to yours, Ben and Ken, and that's even my boyfriend of over 5 years in the cover photo in what he dubbed "Rainbow Fairy." However, Stephanie is on point here, this is an article from the Scene section, where they cover parties and nightlife. Certainly Adam's and my relationship is a lot more than dressing up silly and having fun at parties. We go through the daily life joys and struggles that ANY couple goes through. Is that reflected here in this Scene article? No. Should it be? No. I read last week's articles regarding LGBT weddings in SC and the profile on the female same love couple, and it was all well done. I have also seen very nice coverage of the people that are part of the realness of the LGBT community here in Charleston over the years in Charleston City Paper. So yes, Ben and Ken, you are right to realize that this article profiled the party side of Pride, but it was meant to, by a paper that does stand behind us, our community and our equal rights. And how can't you smile wide from ear to ear when you look at that picture of Adam.... And I count us both lucky and privileged that we have been able to live a very open life together in Charleston over these past five years. Progress has been amazing here and across the country, yet there certainly is a long way to go, and I do feel that the City Paper does "have our backs." Sometimes we do have to celebrate and party, and just like everything else, we do it all out, fabulously and better than anyone else!
I love Joe Pasta... awesome happy hour with buy one get one apps, and if you haven't tried their take on nachos, you're missing out
