Gay and lesbian couples on their lasting love

With Valentine’s Day around the corner and romantic merchandise for sale on all sides, it may seem inevitable to get a little cynical about romance. But then, with gay and lesbian relationships under daily attack, what better time to celebrate the long-time loves in our own community.

Love comes quickly for some. For others it takes a long and circuitous path. But for all of those who find it, love is something to be cherished. These four couples are just an example of the depth and breadth of love and romance to be found in the gay and lesbian community.
