Outside the Stonewall Inn, as a crowd was celebrating the Supreme Court’s same-sex marriage ruling, I met Don Russell, 84, and his 100-year-old partner, Charles Schaeffer.
These two men have been together for 62 YEARS. 
When they started dating, Harry Truman was president. It was an entirely different world for gay men, to put it mildly. 
"You couldn’t walk around like this," said Don, looking down. Their hands were clasped tightly together.
