I am a white gay male. I have been active in the Gay movement since 1968. I was a member of One in Detroit. In February or March of 1970 I joined the Gay Liberation Front of Detroit. Near the end of 1970 I was elected Coordinator of GLF Detroit and served in that capacity until January of 1972. I was also a founding member--and, the first lay head--of Metropolitan Community Church of Detroit. I was also a member of Integrity which is the LGBT Caucus of the Episcopal Church.
We met in 2003 and were married in 2005. Allen had been in one prior marriage (also biracial) and Karen had never been married. We've been perfect for each other; we are like best friends, only better! We've never had an argument. Everything just clicks into place for us.
