    kindest, loving and most beautiful souls I ever met, died of pneumocystis carinii pneumonia in 1994. He died with only his hateful and homophobic family around him, people who all his life told him he was an abomination.

    His lover and soul-mate - the man he would have married if they'd had the right - was barred from entering the country; even if he'd been a US citizen the family and the hospital both would have kept him away from Wayne.

    I thought of both of them last week. It's been nearly twenty years but the pain of losing him is still so close, especially under such horrific circumstances. I would give almost anything to be able to share this joyous news with them.

    Sadly, their wedding and their life together is something that will ever only exist in my imagination. Bitter.
