Busy Weekend

This past weekend was a busy one for me because it was my 50th MIT reunion. I had a great time - attending some interesting lectures, going to Commencement, having some meals, and meeting up with people I hadn't seen for 50 years. At MIT I lived in Baker House, the one dorm that had a dining hall which helped develop a pretty good community. I spent a fair amount of time with friends that I'd had from that dorm. In the middle of this reunion, on Saturday I went to the Cambridge River Festival where the GLBT Commission had a table. (This LJ Icon is my Yearbook picture)

Then I went to the BGALA reception - none of my classmates were there - surprise, surprise. In my biography I was out - and when I perused the book I found no others. I did get the results of a survey of our class that showed that 8 people said they had same sex partners. Among other people, I met the MIT LGBT liaison and will try to link her up with some of my contacts in the Cambridge Police department to help her arrange some GLBT training done for the MIT police.
