Rio de Janeiro BrazilI’m not much of one for living in the past which is kind of odd considering my love of history, but every now and again a milestone anniversary sneaks up on me and it makes me pause for a moment.

Fifteen years ago on Thursday, January 28th, 1999 I met Sergio at a restaurant in Harvard Square for a date.  We had exchanged numbers a couple of weeks earlier off to the side of the dance floor at Campus; a gay club that once upon a time was in Central Square. I had no expectations but was intrigued by this blue-eyed Brazilian who was different from anyone else I had ever met before.

The past 15 years have had their ups and downs, but the ride has been worth it. Together we’ve traveled the world and made more memories than my head can contain.  It makes me optimistic and excited to see what the next 15 years might bring.  Happy anniversary Sergio.
