Robert Brown and Nathanael GayHomophobia in the Black community is a horribly kept secret and the marriage between Robert Brown and Nathanael Gay has once again brought it to the surface.

Gay is a member of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc. and social media exploded with vitriolic criticism towards the couple, many stating that it was insulting to the ‘Frat’ to have a gay, Kappa wedding.

This, of course, led to a broader conversation surrounding homosexuality in general. The comment sections across various sites, including Clutch Magazine where the story was first reported, exploded with polarizing commentary, once again proving that the LGBT community and marriage equality are still hot button issues in Black America, especially when placed in the context of a traditionally, masculine Greek fraternity that proudly call themselves “Pretty Boys.”

See wedding footage below:

It’s a sad day when the beauty, love and commitment between two people can not be applauded. Better it be ignored than turned into something sordid to be ripped to shred by evangelicals and homophobes who think love is defined by what’s between one’s legs instead of what’s in one’s heart.

Unwilling to stay still in the box the world has placed them in, several members of Kappa Alpha Psi can be seen joyously celebrating with Gay and his groom on their big day. That big, open, unapologetic love between brothers is just as heartwarming as the main event and is a strong testament to progress and inclusiveness.

I celebrate your love with you, Robert and Nathanael, and wish you a lifetime of happiness together.
