Know Your Neighbors

April 14, 2002

In "Just Like Family" (by Heather King, March 10), the gay couple is described as swishy, catty--cartoonish even--but also lovable. It's as if Angelenos can only deal with gay couples who are quasi-eccentric. How about writing an article that doesn't buy into the "just call me Martha, darling!" jungle print lava-lava-wearing older gay couple stereotype? What about the regular Joe gay couples who live next to so many L.A. residents? We are out there, in plain jeans, working like everyone else and eating dinner like everyone else with no caviar or lobster-stuffed tomatoes in sight.
