Gay on the North Fork

We've started a month-long series in Suffolk Times and News-Review this week (to coincide with gay pride month) about being gay on the North Fork.

This week, I've written an article about local reaction among gays and lesbians to the governor's executive order requiring NY state agencies to recognize same-sex marriages performed in other states.

Next week, I'm writing about federal issues affecting local gay people, focusing on immigration. The following week, I'll be writing about gay parents raising families on the North Fork. And the week after that, I'm writing about "then vs. now" — how things have changed, how they haven't.

If you've got a story to share for any part of this series, I'd love to hear from you. Please send me an e-mail at I can protect your identity if you want to remain anonymous (though I will need to verify your identity myself.)

Also, please visit our Web sites www. and vote in this week's online poll question: Should NY legalize same-sex marriage? (The poll is at the bottom of the home page, on the right.)
