Peep Show: 'Because I love her'

COMMITMENT CEREMONY AT ATLANTA PRIDE: Committed lesbian action!

Gay Pride started 38 years ago as a riot in response to an NYPD raid on a gay bar in Greenwich Village. Over the decades, it has morphed from a charged political protest into a cheerful, weekend-long party. This year’s Pride headliners included camp icon Leslie Jordan and former teen pop sensation and “Skating With Celebrities” star Debbie Gibson. She goes by Deborah now.

The weekend is not politics-free, however. As in years past, Atlanta Pride’s schedule included a Friday night commitment ceremony for same-sex couples. Asked why she and partner Gina Pollut participated in the ceremony even though Georgia and most of the country refuses to legally recognize it, Meleia Hudgins replied simply, “Because I love her.”
