Annette & Anastasia

We met in Bible college in 2003. I knew the moment I met her she was really something ... I became a pastor and she went into the military. But I told her, "I don't know if I am a lesbian, but if you let me, I could love you forever." After much self-discovery and acceptance, I resigned and, after years of loving her, she found her way back to me, and I into her heart! We have a daughter and a long, raw journey, but worth every moment!

Tommy & Larry

We met on a blind date in April 1969. When I walked him to the New York Subway stop, he took me in his arms and kissed me goodnight in front of thousands of people leaving the theaters on Broadway. We have been in love ever since. We have been out and proud always. We were at the Stonewall riots and lost most of our your adult friends to AIDS in the 80's & 90's. We are truly blessed with LOVE and a great life! Photo of us on our 40th Anniversary.
