About this Item

Offered is a (probable) complete issue (Sections A through D, F, and G present; no reference in front cover index to a Section E) of the Tuesday, May 18, 2004 issue of The Boston Globe headlined: "Wedding day: First gays marry; many seek licenses." Written by Yvonne Abraham and Michael Paulson, both from the Globe staff, the first paragraph reads: "More than 1,000 gay and lesbian couples streamed into city and town halls across the state yesterday seeking licenses to marry, as Massachusetts marked the first day of legalized same-sex matrimony" (accompanied by a large full-color cover photograph of Don Picard and Robert DeBenedictis and two smaller color photographs of Cody Rogahn and Jonathan Yarbrough; and Lise Glading-DiLorenzo and Jo Glading-DiLorenzo). With several related articles articles in the newspaper, well-illustrated with photographs, about this historic event, including: "R.I., Conn. may grant recognition" (front cover) written by Raphael Lewis and Stephanie Ebbert; "Survey finds women in majority" (front cover) written by Scott S. Greenberger and Bill Dedman; and the delicious "Civilization in ruins" (Section B), a critique of gay marriage naysayers, including Governor Mitt Romney, written by columnist Brian McGrory of the Globe staff, which reads in short part: "Back in the old days, which now count as every day before yesterday, I used to look at Mitt Romney as a governor with a lot of unfulfilled potential. Now, I look at him as a guy with a gorgeous head of hair. For that matter, check out those deep-set eyes, that almost unnaturally trim waist, the incredibly muscled gams - - - All of which might explain how I came to be standing in the marble corridors of the State House yesterday nervously contemplating the one question I had climbed Beacon Hill to ask: Governor, would you marry me? Oh, don't get me wrong. I'm not gay. At least I don't think so - But now, with the advent of gay marriage in Massachusetts, I have these strange feelings, sensations really. Let's call them, for lack of a better word, emotions. I'm confused. First and foremost, I'm confused as to how to pop the big question. How about, 'Mitt, we've grown beyond the usual governor/columnist relationship, and it's time for us to accept the fate that is inexorably ours?' Or, 'Mitt, I'd like to invite you to a gay wedding, and you're in it.' Or maybe, 'Mitt, I know you already have a wife, but how about a husband?' - And then it occurs to me that Mitt and Tommy [Finneran] and all those other equally handsome chaps who keep railing on about the sanctity of heterosexual marriage, the undermining of family values, and the bedlam that such a profound social change will cause, they're right. Every one of them. On every point.". Bookseller Inventory # 005766
