Same-Sex Couples Barred From The Newlywed Game

"As you may or may not know, the Game Show Network is relaunching "The Newlywed Game." And as you also may or may not know, same-sex couples are currently marrying in two of our nation's states, as well as obtaining civil unions in four more. So that of course means that newly-wedded gay and lesbian couples will be totally eligible for the revised version of the 70's era game show classic, right?

Well, not so fast, queer fans of televised compatibility tests. For if the "Newlywed Game" rules and requirements that were sent to us by a reader are to be believed, it seems that our unions might not make the cut:"

Contact the Game Show Network and tell them same-sex couples should be allowed to be contestants on the show!

H/T to Good As You for the story.

GDad - I have yet to hear a response and from other blogs I read who have contacted GSN I don't think they heard back yet either. Stay tuned for an update, unless they try to ignore us!

This is getting weirder. According to Good As You Judy Gold OUT Lesbian comedian will be hosting the show. So an out Lesbian is hosting a show that bars gay couples? Hmmm stay tuned.
