Today Show Wedding Contest Finalists Don’t Include Any Same-Sex Couples

After GLAAD targeted the Today show for not allowing same-sex couples to participate in their “Modern Love” wedding contest, NBC relented and agreed to include them.

But the four finalists were announced and introduced today – and there are no same-sex couples.

The ages of the final four are diverse, as are the ethnicities. But the “Modern Love” contest includes no same-sex couples.

There is no response from GLAAD yet.

> Update: GLAAD tells The Advocate in part: “While it is disappointing that there are no same-sex couples among the finalists this year, we know that as our community continues to be vocal and submit stories of our love and commitment, future contests will truly be ‘modern.’”
Here’s today’s segment introducing the couples:
