Pete comes from a very loving family which includes his mother Barbara, recently deceased father Peter, his sister Debbie, brother-in-law Tom and two nieces Danielle and Dana. Peter and his husband Glenn will be celebrating their 25th year together on November 19 and we wish them many many more years of happiness to come!
Pete has been a long time member of LICF and has been an avid supporter of the church with his time and talents. He has been producing the LICF Newsletter at his own expense for many years. You can always find Pete at all LICF events taking pictures and gathering information for the newsletter. He spends hours looking over all current and future events to make sure our newsletters are not only informative but entertaining as well. It not only serves our members but the GLBT community at large. His diligence and hard work have made the LICF newsletter one of the most effective online Christian social media outreach for the LI community.
He has been a champion of GLBT rights along with his husband Glenn. Some of the many organizations he has volunteered for include Human Rights Campaign, Empire State Pride Agenda and Marriage Equality of NY. As Program Director, Pete was instrumental in the success of The Long Island Gay and Lesbian Film Festival in its first years (2000-2011).
He currently is active with The Long Island Pride Sports Association Summer Softball and Fall Bowling leagues. Pete is the recipient of The Long Island Community Service award as Volunteer of the Year and as a couple Peter and Glenn have won Activist of the Year.
Pete enjoys Broadway, his beloved Yankees, sci-fi, horror films as well as rooting for other local sport teams. Pete and his husband Glenn are one of Long Island’s favorite and easily recognizable GLBT couples
Pete is an extraordinary man and even though life has been uneasy for him this year as he lost his Father and Glenn lost his brother. They have been able to move forward due in no small way to the Love and strength they gain from each other. Pete brings a quiet strength and a quick smile to everyone he meets. He is an asset to our community and we are privileged to call him our Brother
Thank You Pete for all you do!
