As I sit before my computer on Valentine's Day Eve, I've been thinking about couples that will celebrate another Valentine's Day together tomorrow. When Woody Baldwin thought of that idea of inviting older gay men to that first event in Boston, he was probably thinking of those who might not have a special person in their lives to be the recipient of a Valentine's Day card. His life was blessed by his beloved Sean O'Neill. However, like the surprisingly large turnout at the first event, it included couples who were not involved in social activities.
I would like to share a wonderful story with you. For the past few years, I have been working with the LGBT Center here in Las Vegas to have a Thanksgiving dinner for all LGBT seniors in the community. The Center is closed on Thanksgiving Day, but they made an exception this past year and opened it for this event.
