Post First openly gay congressman died 


Quote:
Former U.S. Rep. Gerry Studds, the first openly gay person elected to Congress, died early Saturday at Boston Medical Center, several days after he collapsed while walking his dog, his husband said.

Studds fell unconscious Oct. 3 because of what doctors later determined was a blood clot in his lung, Dean Hara said. Hara, who married Studds shortly after gay marriage was legalized in Massachusetts in 2004, said Studds was a pioneer who gave courage to gay people everywhere by winning re-election after publicly acknowledging his homosexuality. ... Associated Press

It seems like the AP acknowledged their gay marriage was legit. As far as I know, gay marriage has not been legalized at the fed level and the issue is in the hand of high courts in MA. Is it just me or does anyone else find the term "HIS husband" a bit strange?
