Today we’re stopping by two more stops for the AMPU tour:
First off, my friend Andrew Q. Gordon is hosting me at his place:
I just reached the end of a long journey, one that started in 1989, two years before I came out to my friends and family. That year, I attended my first gay wedding. It wasn’t so much a wedding, though, as a furtive ceremony between two gay men, held in a stand of bamboo at the Huntington Museum, surrounded protectively by three friends.
Back then, the idea of two guys getting married was almost unthinkable. We were afraid someone would see us and make a scene. I was sure I’d never have the opportunity to marry the guy I hoped one day to love.
I met that guy in 1992, after coming out. Mark was everything I was looking for. Handsome, kind, a reader, a guy who didn’t drink. Sweet, steady, and amazing. After two weeks we moved in together, but we never even thought about getting married. It’s hard to describe how inconceivable it was at the time…
And the fabulous Amber Kell is also hosting us for a book announcement:
