What Does a Lesbian "Look" Like?

When asked recently by a reporter whether she had an affair with a woman, Florida Lt. Governor Jennifer Carroll said "Black women who look like me don't engage in relationships like that." GLAAD called Carroll's comments "anti-gay and sexist" and created an online petition demanding her apology. On July 27, Carroll released a letter of apology to Equality Florida, a gay and lesbian advocacy group, saying that as a Christian woman, she strives to "love and respect all people." (Photo: Shealah Craighead)
