The Bachelor/The Bachelorette: Include gay/lesbian groups and couples on the TV show!

A while ago, the TV show The Bachelor/The Bachelorette got blasted for not including minority races on their show. As someone who associates with the LGBT community, I would like to see the show include gay, bisexual, and lesbian contestants as well as straight ones. Anyone should have the opportunity to "find love" on TV, regardless of their sexual orientation (or race). Not only would the show be more diverse, open and attract viewers from more walks of life, but it would probably be a lot more interesting too!

To:
The Bachelor/The Bachelorette, ABC
Include gay/lesbian groups and couples on the TV show as well as straight.

Sincerely,
[Your name]

      It's about time that gays are portrayed as people who seek love, and not the distorted perception that too many people believe.

      Comments by current Bachelor are offensive and demonstrate need to show that the program and network believe ALL people deserve to find love.

      “To those who are gay, lesbian, bisexual,or transgender-let me say- you are not alone. You're struggle, for the end to violence and discrimination, is a shared struggle. Today, I stand with you. And I call upon all countries and people, to stand with you too.

      A historic shift is underway. We must tackle the violence, decriminalize consensual same sex relationships and end discrimination. We must educate the public. I call on this council and people of conscience to make this happen.

      The time has come.”
