A new BBC survey has revealed that when planning their weddings gay couples would spurn up to 20% of their families and friends. Speaking under strict anonymity, one couple revealed that they were perfectly aware that some of their family and friends only pretended to like them. "Maybe they are ashamed of their homophobia, or just want to impress their other friends", the couple explained. "We understand the pressures of everyday life, and our dinner parties are rather super. So it's no wonder they all accept when we are trying to reach out to straight people and show how normal we are."
But this faux civility ends when a gay couple plans their wedding. This couple continued "To be honest, we want to spend our special day with people who accept us for who we are. Weddings are no place for tokenism or inappropriate expressions of ideology or religion. So that lot can go and get screwed."
