More queer invisibility

This Boston Herald headline refers to a lesbian couple as “galpals.”

The article refers to their being lesbians, and that they are in fact a couple, but I’m not sure how being lesbians get equated to being just friends in the headline.  Way to make their sexuality invisible.

This on the back of the obscenity of lesbians kissing.
