Yes, they was a couple even befor that date, but even if they cleary state to love each others, the meaning of their "I love her" was subject to long debate [Platonic love? Sisterhood Love?] and the Marvel ad to confirm that they was a couple. Also, was stated that that Destiny have known Mystique while she was living as a man, giving others motivation of doubt to readers about their being "gay", if Mystique was able to change sex...

Northstar was the first to have a clear coming out on page, stating "I'm gay", without any question or doubt :)

Northstar, he was the first coming out in the story of Marvel/DC :)

What, really?

Mystique and Destiny were the first openly gay couple in X-Men. They were confirmed as a couple in 1989, immediately after the comics code was altered to allow homosexuals.

I know, Mystique and Destiny were meant to be a couple since they were created, but it was confirmed that they were lesbians the moment that the comics code allowed them to, while Northstar had to wait a few years. It may not of ever been said that they were lesbians, buy in 1989 it became obvious by the way they would talk and interact. Their story even ended with Mystique killing herself, after Destiny's death, because she couldn't live without the woman she loved... Then Chris Claremont lost creative control of the X-Men, and Marvel retconned Mystique's death on their way to turning the X-Men into the cash cow that they became during the 90s.

Just like it was hinted that Mystique and Destiny were a couple long before it was confirmed, it was also hinted that Northstar was gay since the beginning. John Byrne has said that he indented the characters to be gay since the beginning. I've heard about it being hinted that he was gay in early Alpha Flight issues, but I never actually read them.

There was also a openly gay supporting character in John Byrne's Superman from the late 80s, which also was before Northstar came out.

@invain: yeah, I'm not saying that Northstar was the first gay character of all time, and yes, was hinted years before that he was gay. I'm pointing out the difference, since he was the first to make a "coming out" IN comic. There is a difference between authours and editor let you understand, or even confirming that a certain characters is gay, and the character itself admitting that directly on the page of a comics :) more than ever in the way Northstar have done it :)

Anyway, no problem, glad to find someone that know some history of comics :)
