I was the guest on lgbtSr.com’s podcast Aged to Perfection today with host Mark McNease. Here’ the link
Mark asked me to talk about my recent trip to Cuba, so I did. He also wants me to do more travel articles in future – about Cuba – so I will. I will finish my articles about the amazing trip across America Karin and I took to retrace my ancestors’ journey on the Oregon Trail, then I will start articles about Cuba. I have been there three times now and would return in a heartbeat!
Here’s a few pictures of me in Cuba:
The first one is in the plaza at Habana Vieja, Old Havana. The second is in Hotel Tulipan, Havana, with a member of the Industriales baseball team, also staying there. The third is in Matanzas. The last is in Varadero with Hermes, one of our bus drivers.
Here’s my regular signoff for my blogs, too…
Immigration Equality, Out4Immigration and Love Exiles Foundation are the three groups working on our issue – and the three groups who receive whatever money comes in from sales of my book, Torn Apart: United by Love, Divided by Law, Findhorn Press, 2011.
My newer project, with David W. Ross, whose new film “I Do: The Movie” will be out in June 2012, is a portrait project of LGBT binational families, United by Love, Divided by Law Portrait Project. It expands the reach of my book and will keep adding portraits as we find couples and funds to add more. We will hold events to assist the work being done for our families by Lavi Soloway and Stop the Deportations – The DOMA Project. Check out the site at

Elizabeth Gilbert wrote the foreword to my book. She is an ally in our fight and has suffered from the immigration situation herself as part of a binational relationship. Though she and her boyfriend were able to marry, they know what the drill was and they advocate for LGBT binational families. We like that!
