Vernon & Robert /

“Being a gay man, having a male partner for thirty seven years and living together, Robert and I have not had any challenges in the way we are living our life.

Living conditions (dwelling) food consumption is good, clothing, so far good health, finance, loving families from both sides, past co-workers and friends and great doctors.

Out we are respected in our neighborhood, we understand that there is a struggle within the LGBTQ Community with communication and understanding upon others who are not informed on that persons lifestyle, the struggle would not be misunderstood.

I support the LGBTW Community and I do hope that all of its needs are met.

There is love between Robert and I”
