Well, little Jimmy Hormel, heir to the SPAM fortune, had that problem and more in real life. Born in Austin, Minnesota, in 1933, he was also gay in a place and time long before being gay was in the public consciousness.

The result is a touching multi-media traveling exhibit and book, <i><a href="http://www.goldenstatesofgrace.com/dialogue.html"><u><font color="#0000ff">Golden States of Grace: Prayers of the Disinherited</font></u></a></i>.

In Alameda County, the news from a ground-breaking state-funded study is mostly good, but it shows room for improvement. Dan Ashbrook of the non-profit group Lavender Seniors just finished conducting a series of care-giver trainings also funded by the government grant.
