When the legal system doesn’t allow you same-sex spousal rights, what do you do? Adopt your boyfriend, of course. Today we welcome guest Walter Neagle, who is here to tell us the incredible story of his relationship with civil rights legend Bayard Rustin. In the 80s, as a clever workaround to severely homophobic legal restrictions, Bayard legally adopted Walter to provide him legal rights. Tune in to hear Walter’s reminiscences of his extraordinary boyfriend, and the legacy he upholds every day.
