Typo, or Trying Too Hard?

I’m on an email list for supporters of gay marriage in California. They’re workin’ at it. (I’m sure the Mormons are beavering away on their side of the forest too, if you’ll forgive the expression.)

Today’s email led off with an amusing goof:

“Next week will mark the one-year anniversary of the first legally recognized marriages in California.”

Oops! Would this be a typo? Or do you suppose the writer was bending over backwards SOOOO energetically to make gay marriage look like any other marriage (which of course it is) that he or she deliberately suppressed the word “gay” in that sentence?
