My Aunt Turns 103 Years Old


On January 6th my aunt turned 103. Several decades ago, she took me aside at a family reunion to say, "Your uncle and I have known you were gay for many years. We want you to know we are so proud of you."


My aunt was a staunch Republican and regular church goer. That is until a few years ago when she no longer could stomach what the party had become.

This picture was taken when she was in her 70s. She still has that twinkle in her eye.
