Guess Who's Coming to Dinner

    Newer Older

    In late November of 2003, the Massachusetts Supreme Court made history when it ruled that the state's constitution does not prohibit gay people from marrying. This is an illustration I did for The Washington Post that year to mark the occasion.

    The Illustration Friday word this week is "Thanksgiving."

      Thanks for the comments. Jimmyjanesays, you got it about the stereotypes. When I did this illustration, the gay marriage ruling was brand new and Thanksgiving was about a week away, so I wanted to use those very stereotypes in my drawing to make my point "easy to read."
