chipreichenCBS thrusts ‘married gays’ on public

May 29, 2003: CBS Television promoted its debut of “The Amazing Race 4” by proudly proclaiming a male homosexual couple on the show to be married to each other, at a time when homosexual marriage was not legal anywhere in the U.S.

“Yes, they are a married, gay couple,” a CBS spokeswoman said. “They’re married and they’re gay. Is there an issue?”

The online write-up on the “married” male couple included:

Twenty-eight-year-old Reichen is a pilot and teaches at a flight school in Los Angeles. A former U.S. Air Force officer and a graduate of the U.S. Air Force academy, he is married to his teammate Chip. He loves skiing and flying and is very into being physically fit. He describes himself as “detail-oriented, caring and thrill-seeking.” He speaks French and has traveled internationally quite a bit. Reichen’s views on relationships are much more liberal than Chip’s – He enjoys flirting with other guys, but that makes Chip upset.
