The Love That Will Finally Speak Its Name

To balance one bad gay with one good gay, here is a beautiful story (click the title link). Newsweek has an excellent section, for those of you who haven’t seen it called “My Turn” where readers can share their stories. In today’s issue, Loraine Barr writes her story. While the writing may not have the accomplished flow of a novelist, or the intelligence of an academic, it has incredible heart and provides a real look into the past. It is essentially her “coming out” essay. She has waited decades to do it, and as she puts it “Why am I now able to speak the unspoken? For heaven’s sake, I’m 88 years old. No one can fire me.”
