LGBT Stories: Accidental Online Chat Leads To 13 Years Of Love

John Buie TR



Before we even started the Story Tour, I received a donation along with a message from today's storyteller, John, insisting that we make a stop in Palm Springs. We were still in the planning stages of the Tour and John really wanted us to visit and collect some stories. We figured what the heck, if someone has a story to share, that's what we're here for so Palm Springs, here we come. After hearing John's sweet story, I'm sure glad we did.


Driftwood Nathan Manske and Marquise Lee embarked on a 4 month, 50 state tour of the United States collecting stories for their I'm From Driftwood site. We'll be sharing some of the stories they collected along with some of the insight into what they saw. They're still encouraging people to submit their written stories via IFD. You can follow IFD on FacebookTwitter and YouTube.

  3. Doesn't say if his partner has been able to secure a green card. Just wondering how that went... or didn't.

  4. Nice story. It reminds me of how our friends from New Hampshire met 10 years ago. Love will find a way.
