Equally Wed

gayle-kingGayle King, Oprah Winfrey's gal pal, announced her support for marriage equality Friday on her radio show. She summarized her reaction to last week’s DOMA rulings by saying, “I like how you’re thinking in Boston. I like it.”

King summarized the rulings from U.S. district court judge Joseph Tauro as meaning that the court believes same-sex couples should be allowed to marry.

“I do, too, too,” said King. “In the world according to Gayle, I definitely do.”

According to Towleroad.com, King discussed marriage equality in the personal context of her attendance at the September 2008 wedding of producer Scott Sanders and author Brad Lamm.

She expressed her hope that marriage equality would unfold as a competition, the way airfare wars do.

“It’s sort of monkey see, monkey do,” she said. “I am really hoping that that happens.”

King also gave "Mommy Hugs" to the Today show on NBC for its decision last week to include same-sex couples in its Modern Day Wedding Contest.
