Black Women, Gay Marriage, Hearts & Minds | Young Black Professional Guide.

via YBPguide

One way I will have to look at this issue is understanding that the hearts and minds of my sisters may have been affected by my request to validate a commitment to another man. I had never considered that. On some level, I am an example of what has eluded them. One of my closest friends, a beautiful black woman that a colleague described as “Michelle Obama-like,” frequently calls me a “waste.” I get that. And on some level, I wish I could be that figure in a black community of heterosexual marriage, family, and life-building; however, that is not my call (nor my choice, but that is a different article).
