How they met: B: We met about 12 years ago when we were undergrads at Columbia University. I had a majorly geeky crush on her back then, and she was way too cool for me. She moved back to Asia after graduation for a few years, but when she returned to NYC, she looked me up and we've been together ever since. M: We met at Saints, a gay bar not too far from Columbia where we were both undergrads. It was 1999; I was a sophomore and B was a freshman. I believe she might have walked over to me and introduced herself -- or my ego could be making this up, I really can't say for sure. In any case, we were just friends in college and didn't start dating till we reconnected in NY 8 years later.
Where were they when they found out the bill was passed? B: We were in a taxi coming home from dinner with my sister and her bf... we were cheering with happy tears.Opening Ceremony Love is Equal T-Shirt!
