I was in the SF band for two years, ’92-’94, playing the trumpet. It was a great experience for me, a defining part of being out, having community, and giving back to the city of San Francisco. When we went to NYC in 1994 for Gay Games, I met my future partner… I moved to NYC in 1995, and my partner, Mary, and I have been together 11 years now. Wow, I’m old! Being in the band was so important to me. Identity, friendships, musicianship, community… the only sad times were saying good-bye to friends who went way too early, before they were ready to go, before I was ready to say “good-bye.”
