Lenny Tweeden, Fargo, Published February 20 2013

Letter: There is no fear of ‘coming out’

I disagree with Denis Richardson’s letter on Feb 18.

As an active member of the GLBT community, I and my partner have been openly gay since 1983 in Fargo. In the past years I’ve worked openly gay for five employers. My partner has also worked for five employers. Our benefits are domestic partnership. Most corporate companies are GLBT friendly. If my partner shows up at work, “Lenny, your boyfriend is here.” If he calls work, “Lenny, your boyfriend is on the phone.”

No one should be in the closet anymore, even in North Dakota.
