The newest issue ofÂ Jet magazine, which hitsÂ newsstandsÂ today, features its first black male couple in its weddings section, according toÂ GLAAD.
Ravi Perry, an assistant professor ofÂ politicalÂ scienceÂ at Mississippi State University, and Paris Prince, a licensed real estate broker and compliance officer forÂ Massachusetts Commission against Discrimination, were married in August at their home in Worcester, Mass.
The feature of theÂ newlywedsÂ includes a short bio of the couple and explains how the two fell in love.
“Jet magazine has an extensive legacy of covering the lives of LGBT African-Americans,” said GLAAD president Herndon Graddick inÂ the press release. “This is yet another opportunity to applaud Jet magazine for continuing to highlight the diversity of the African-American community and to urge other media outlets to recognize that it’s these stories that help grow acceptance of our community and give a voice to LGBT people of color who are too often invisible in the media.”
