The controversial decision to include same-sex couples in the Clovis High School yearbook in New Mexico was made to show the school's "diversity," according to student editor-in-chief Maggie Chavez and staff member Jessie Hardison. "There [are] gay and lesbian couples in the school and they have a right to be in the yearbook just as much as anybody else does," Chavez said. The inclusion has been criticized by anti-gay religious groups and former Lt. Gov. Walter Bradley.
