Eight Years After Falling in Love With Her, My Wife Has Changed

I remember getting my gallbladder removed on December 25, 2010. It was a horribly painful experience, but it was the best Christmas gift I ever got. After that, I was determined to change my eating habits. My wife, Cicely, and I had been thinking about becoming vegetarians.

After 15 years as a black queer working professional, I felt absolutely comfortable just being myself.
