Seems like this would be a great target for vandals, I wonder if they even thought about that. I would rather be buried anywhere I want, not just a specific section. This reminds me of having to sit in the back of the bus.

"the idea of having a gay section in a cemetery seemed like a natural progression gay men and lesbians gather more acceptance in mainstream society."

So the more acceptance we get, the more we want to separate ourselves from everyone else by having our own "gay section?"

I think this move is totally unnecessary. Not to mention feeds the impression that the gay community have a false sense of entitlement.
