How's this for positive news involving a gay couple?
Vancouver's Claude and Kurt Blanchette-Ebert won the $50 million Lotto Max jackpot last Friday, the largest lottery winning in B.C. history.
This time, we don't have to read yet another news story about someone gay losing his job because of his sexual orientation; or dying from AIDS; or being bashed somewhere in Vancouver's West End; or committing suicide; or being discriminated against.
This time, a gay couple, celebrating their thirtieth anniversary next month, wins a life-changing amount of money, and the newspaper article presents them like any straight couple who's won lottery monies in the past.
We can use all the good news we can get.
