I’m a happily married 52 year old FLAG with a six year old daughter. I’m here to support the LGBTTQ community. I served on active duty in the US Army from 1979 to 1989 and continue to campaign for full service rights for all who wish to serve regardless of any arbitrary and irrelevant condition (skin color, religion, national origin, sexual orientation). I am a member of the Curch of St Paul & St Anrew, a fully inclusive congregation located at West 86th Street & West End Avenue on the Upper West Side of Manhattan.
When you grow up in Rhode Island, as I did, and you return to Newport, you bring a perspective that is steeped in nostalgia yet tempered by a response to changes, good and bad, that you notice as you amble down familiar streets.
