Houston and its gays regularly make national lists of the best, brightest and gayest. We’re used to it. But dang it if we aren’t beaming with pride like it’s a new phenomenon every time it happens.
Enter the G-List Society roundup of 2014. The online media outlet for black gay readers regularly celebrates with lists of movers and shakers the site dubs “Black Gays Rock.” Now the collective names its 14 For ’14 Most Inspiring Black Gay Male Couples of 2014.
One of the chosen pairs makes its mark on the world living and loving in gay Houston. It’s a power couple so prolific, you won’t be surprised that Jeff Robertson and Jeremiah Pyant made the G-List cut. They first garnered attention for beating out scores of other couples across the country to win a fantasy wedding contest, which just extended the media and statehouse spotlight on their tearjerking proposal on the beach (photo).
The G-List gives the love warriors some of its love too.
I have been following this couple since they gave me exclusive reporting to their beautiful engagement that took place in 2013. This Texas couple elevated their union as they married earlier this year to bring awareness of their home state’s unpassed law giving same-sex couples the right to marry. Their campaign caught the attention of Texas lawmakers, and the couple keeps their following informed about their state’s progression on the issue.
