S.C. Newspaper's Gay Interracial Wedding Announcement


In what may be a sign of a national sea change, the South Carolina newspaper The State has published the wedding announcement of a gay interracial couple who married in New York State.

William Leonard Hasty III (left) and Gregory Maurice Smith were married July 26 at Town Hall in Mamaroneck, N.Y. While they live in New York, the couple met in Columbia, S.C., in 1984 when they both were commissioned officers in the U.S. Army. They have two sons.
