In ladies who love ladies who love China news, longtime D.C. journo Deb Price is leaving our fair city at the end of this month. After 22 years at the Detroit News, she’s hanging up her hat and heading off to exotic destinations like Asia…and New England. Price will first hit New Hampshire to freelance the presidential primary and then it’s off to China to join her wife, Joyce Murdoch who was recently awarded an MIT fellowship to study the country’s impact on global warming.
Price’s history in D.C. media spans nearly three decades. She spent five years at the Washington Post before joining Detroit News in 1989. In 1992, she launched her first-of-its-kind column on gay issues in The News, and it was nationally syndicated. She has co-authored two books, “And Say Hi to Joyce: America’s First Gay Column Comes Out,” and “Courting Justice: Gay Men and Lesbians v. the Supreme Court.” Deb and Joyce were the first gay couple to appear on WaPo’s weddings page after marrying in Canada in 2003.
The two ladies plan to remain in China and work as journalists after the fellowship. First our jobs…and now our lesbians. China must be stopped. Until then, best of luck to Deb and Joyce!
