LGBTQ news gets front-page status? | Letter
The March 23 issue of The Beacon had an LGBTQ support group article boldly in your face on the front page (“Local woman starts LGBTQ support group.”)
This subject is very controversial and politically provocative, and to give it front-page status seems out of touch with the demography of Edmonds. Seniors in the area, especially, are more conservative politically and/or hold to more traditional values, and you chance alienating them by making this a headline (not to mention suggesting a political bias to the newspaper).
I am not a bigot; I respect and care for everyone, but believe it would have been much better for the paper and readers to have put a condensed version of this article on inside pages, considering your readership.
