Rachel Maddow revealed her conflicted feelings about gay marriage in a new cover interview with the Hollywood Reporter.
The interview was published Wednesday. In it, Maddow said that, though she and her longtime partner, artist Susan Mikula, knew many people who had gotten married, the two didn’t “feel any urgency” to join them. The reason, she said, was that she is ambivalent about the assimilationist aspect of gay marriage.
“I feel that gay people not being able to get married for generations, forever, meant that we came up with alternative ways of recognizing relationships,” she told THR. “And I worry that if everybody has access to the same institutions that we lose the creativity of subcultures having to make it on their own. And I like gay culture.”
