Hopefully you got to hear about the NBC show "Modern Love" and the rules for contestants that included being of good morals and not having anything in their backgrounds that would embarrass NBC or the Today Show (Read as: don't be gay!) Of course, if they were denying exclusion of gays at all, this story from GLAAD confirms the suspicion:
"This afternoon NBC and the Today Show did just that. Following a meeting between GLAAD and NBC executives, NBC announced that after listening to community concerns it will open the contest to same-sex couples and extend the submission deadline until Monday, July 12. Couples now have until then to apply. Finalists will be announced later this year and the wedding takes place live on the Today Show this October."
