I'm From Driftwood Spotlights Black LGBT Community

In honor of Black History Month, the storytelling project I’m From Driftwood spotlighted members of the Black LGBT community. The online video series which collects and shares LGBT stories from all over the world also made a commitment to feature more stories of all people of color and different ethnicities beyond this month.

Our First Valentine's Day as Husband and Husband

A couple of weeks ago my husband Joaquin and I had dinner with our friend Julia and her parents at a Mexican restaurant in Columbia Heights in Washington, D.C. My friend, who had just finished law school, came out to her parents four years ago. Her dad has been mostly supportive, but her mom is much less comfortable. As a committed couple, friends often invite Joaquin and me to dinners with their less comfortable parents to show them an example of a loving, happy and productive gay couple. It can sometimes be uncomfortable for us, but we always at least get a nice dinner out of it.
