Portraits of Pride: Michael Roberts and Michael Johnson
Pride month has begun! To celebrate, we’ll share a “Portrait of Pride” each week throughout June, featuring SAGE participants. This week we're introducing Michael Roberts and Michael Johnson, who were photographed in their home.
Michael Roberts (left) and Michael Johnson (right) have been together for more than thirty years, having met at a party when, as Michael Johnson says, “Michael [Roberts] went to meet the host—I went to flirt with everybody!” More recently, they became the first gay male couple to be legally married in New York State.
Michael and Michael live together in a historic Harlem townhouse that they’ve lovingly restored, and have been SAGE participants and treasured friends of the community for decades.
