One Very Gay Time
'So tell me, America, how do I introduce Joyce?'

I posed that question back in May 1992 in the first column I ever wrote. That debut was an earthshaking breakthrough - a nationally syndicated, weekly column in mainstream newspapers about life from a gay perspective.

Over the next 18 years - and about 900 columns - I introduced my readers, mostly heterosexuals, to a gay couple - Joyce and me - and countless other wonderful people we met along our journalistic adventure.

One was 87-year-old Christine Burton, creator of Golden Threads, a pen pal group for older lesbians. When I asked her about dating a mere 58-year-old, she laughed: "If you're going to blame me for robbing the cradle, I'm going to say, 'What do you want me to do? Rob the grave? Everyone my age is dead.'"
