Champion All the Way

Sam Champion, the longtime ABC weather guy in New York, then on Good Morning America, finally came out today--in a wedding (not his own) write-up in The New York Times.  But in a sense it was a double-wedding notice, as he also announced his own wedding coming up, and IDed his partner.  Very subtle, very heartening.  Andrew Sullivan covers here.  He likens it to the case of Anderson Cooper, who came out after years of rumors.

From the report (that wedding was officiated by SF Mayor Gavin Newsom, who became a Universal Life minister for the occasion): "He took a turn on the dance floor with his partner, the photographer Rubem Robierb. 'We’re getting married New Year’s Eve in Miami,' Mr. Champion said in the spirit of the moment."
