Marriage Equality

Art Johnston, 69, left, and his partner Jose “Pepe” Pena, 69, have been together for 39 years. The two, who opened the bar Sidetrack in Boystown 30 years ago, still can’t legally get married. Recently, some journalists have asked if taking a stand on marriage equality comprises journalist integrity. I think not supporting two people’s human rights is not something anyone can ignore.
