Ruth and I had to send a special thank you to Sal Seeley for providing us with such a wonderful bus trip to NYC yesterday! From start to finish, CAMP Rehoboth did a terrific job and we would go on any trip organized by you! The email, phone cards and even the snack bag were perfect. We were informed and updated throughout the entire process. And you were so kind and helpful letting me and my cane be the last off the bus!!
It was great and again, another example of how many good things come out of your office!
But the most important part of the day was us getting to see Boys In The Band on stage in New York. We saw the film (separately) in 1973 and it was a pivotal point in acknowledging a lifestyle choice for both of us. I remember sitting in that art house in Baltimore in 1973 weeping during the film and we were just three years from Stonewall then! It was such an important affirming moment for Ruth and I yesterday when all those gay actors walked out on stage and did the play about a film that helped change our life.
Forty-five years later that thunderous applause at the end of the play with everyone on their feet clapping and yelling helped me realized that Michael’s plea at the end of the movie has actually and finally happened.
So thanks again, Sal, for an all-around great day and for helping us get a great moment we won’t forget.
