Full Inclusion at the Tony's

It's clear change has happened when the 6th state can affirm marriage equality and it barely gets noticed by the press.

It's clear change when the Tony awards, watched by millions, can feature a large number of out performers and presenters, including the wonderfully charming Neil Patrick Harris who hosted the event (who I've loved since he was the prodigy Doogie Howser.)

It seems to me that full inclusion came to the Tony's last night, and although I'm guessing that athough that may have been uncomfortable for some, that some is a shrinking minority. As Harris sang in the glorious finale, "this should could not have been any gayer if Liza was named mayor or if Elton John took flight."

As network TV goes, so will go the nation.
