For more than ten years I had the pleasure of being the significant other of Rev. Chris Glaser, who has devoted his life to reconciling gay and lesbian people and the church. He’s also a best selling author (“Uncommon Calling,” “Coming Out to God”) and speaker. In 2009, he was honored as Grand Marshal of the Atlanta Pride Parade, and no one deserved it more. If we had still been together, I could have waved to the crowd at his side. Ah, well. Such is life.

Here’s a fun, brief video of his triumphant afternoon.
