Ace Lundon & Patric John Algarin

Ace Lundon (born August 1, 1936), born in Beresford, S.D., in 1936, was raised on a farm.

He attended several colleges and studied English, abnormal psychology and counseling, social science, biblical history and theology, journalism, history and public relations.

Though he is a lifelong Republican, Lundon is an activist for women's rights and minority rights.

He devoted a portion of his life in the 1950's and 1960's to evangelism as a youth pastor, and he is a firm believer in the separation of church and state.

After spending most of his life in the closet, he is now an advocate of gay rights.

Lundon has also worked as a syndicated columnist, reporter, movie reviewer and the managing editor of two national publications: Zipper magazine and The Coast To Coast Times, a homophile newspaper with the second largest circulation in the United States in the 1970's.

After losing his soul mate, Patrick John Algarin (together from 1976 to 1989), to AIDS, Lundon became a board member of the Nevada AIDS Foundation and raised more than $10,000.00 for a memorial.

His first book, an autobiography titled, The Closets Are Empty The Dining Room's Full, was published in 1993.
