Peace Corps Allows Gay Couples

The Peace Corps announced they are now accepting applications from gay couples for the program. A pity this is 10+ years too late. This is something that I had thought of back when we were still in CA. Ron was willing and I had always had it in the back of my mind. There is a short article here.

Lillian Carter was 68 years old when she applied and was accepted. I am not near there yet, but Ron has passed it as an age and as an interest. 

It should be a fantastic opportunity for other young gay couples though, so I applaud the change. Boy Scouts has changed their position on gay scouts, so there is social justice momentum in the US. When they allow gay scout leaders, it will be a real success.
