It Happened Today: January 16

Denis O'Hare & Hugo Redwood: http://reviews-and-ramblings.dreamwidth.org/4135607.html

Denis O'Hare is an American actor noted for his performances in Take Me Out and Sweet Charity as well as the show True Blood. O'Hare is married to Hugo Redwood and the couple have a son. "We got married because we could," Redwood explained. "A lot of the impetus for doing it was because, if we weren’t married, then we’d have to go through two rounds of adoption. I would be Declan’s father, and then Denis would have to adopt him. This way, it’s neat and clean. Now I’m a married man with child."

Jones had told O’Hare he was H.I.V. positive 2 weeks after they met. “I thought about it and decided you don’t get to pick who you love,” said O’Hare. Jones died on January 17, 2000.

George Kelly was an American playwright, screenwriter, director, and actor. He became best known for his satiric comedies. George Kelly maintained a 55-year relationship with his William Weagley up until his death and was often referred to as his valet.

When Furey met Dalton Flint, the photographer didn't get a picture, but got the guy: "I was planning on doing a shoot for my friend’s art publication. I asked my friend, a stylist, if he knew of anyone who’d be good for it, and he said I should ask Mike. He said no, but it was definitely a conversation starter between us. We kept talking and met up for a drunken escapade at a bar and then went to a show afterward." –Dalton
