I am a 63 year old gay male. Retired librarian, sometimes activist, blogger, writer . I am working (2014-15) on a small historical book about my birth city, Poughkeepsie NY, hoping to get that done in a year or so. I also volunteer weekly, as able at the ‘Timeandthevalleysmuseum.org’ , cataloging their book donations in their Archives. Being gay doesn’t define me, but its part of me,as is my activism and much more. I am an independent but tend to vote democrat, Working family or Green party.
