"On her radio show Friday, Gayle King acknowledged the nervousness she felt when invited to the September 2008 wedding of Emmy and Tony Award-winning producer, Scott Sanders and Interventionist and author Brad Lamm. But it took only seconds for her bring her listeners along, sharing the news of last week's ruling that DOMA is unconstitutional by Massachusetts courts. ("I like how they think in Boston.") — and to offer what is I guess her trademark "Mommie Hug" to the Today show for its inclusiveness [by allowing same-sex couples to compete for custom-designed weddings on the Today show].
"Said King, reacting to the U.S. District Court in Boston's striking down of the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) as unconstitutional: "They believe gay people should be able to be married. I do too. In the world according to Gayle I definitely do." [Link]
