The New York Times Magazine is celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Gay Toodays.
The magazine, a Pulitzer Prize-winning quarterly, has been a reliable source for news, insight and commentary on gay issues for more than a quarter-century.
But the latest issue is notable for the presence of a full-color, full-size portrait of a gay couple on the cover.
The first issue featured a portrait of the couple, Frank and Frankie, a gay pair who lived together in a church in New York City.
In the 1950s, when the magazine first published stories about gay life in New Jersey, the two were not married.
Then, after the couple had moved to the Bay Area and had children, they were married in 1952.
They have two daughters.
They had two sons, a son and a daughter.
There is a special place in our hearts for those children, Frankie said in an interview with the magazine.
I love my kids and I love my family, Frank said in the interview.
And I love them more than anything, said Frank, a lawyer and retired police officer.
He was not asked about his own gay relationship with his partner.
Frank and his partner, Frankly, a civil engineer, had been married since 1947.
Frankie and Frankly were among the first members of the New York Police Department’s gay cadre to be assigned to a patrol car.
They were assigned to protect gay men from the mob and were part of a wave of police officers that eventually included the late NYPD Commissioner Charles “Chuck” Fosse, who died in 1996.
In 1953, the police assigned Frank and Frankie to patrol cars on the night of a riot in the Bronx.
Frank was shot and killed by a mobster.
The police sergeant who fired the shot is now a retired NYPD detective.
The two men were later honored with the Police Academy Medal of Honor.
Frank and Frank, who had been active in the civil rights movement and had a son, were later appointed to serve as part of the newly formed New York State Police, which was the first state police force to have a gay police officer assigned.
In a 1967 interview with a reporter for The Advocate, Frank recounted his encounter with the mobster who shot him.
“I said, ‘Hey, you shot Frank,’ ” Frank said.
“‘Yes, you did,’ I said. “
“He said, “I shot you.’ “
Frankie said, “‘What did you shoot me for?’ “
He said, “I shot you.’
Frankie said, “‘What did you shoot me for?’
I said, `I shot him for no reason at all.'”
The story was never reported by the mainstream press.
But in 1990, Frank published a book, which he called, The Gay Tods, which chronicled his own experience as a police officer in the 1950a, and his family’s relationship with their own police officer, Frank Gay, who was the only gay police lieutenant in New Orleans.
Frank Gay was also one of several New Orleans police officers to be honored for his work in the 1960s.
In the 1970s, Frank was honored by the Louisiana State Police with the state’s highest civilian honor, the Louisiana Police Cross, the state flag.
The award was also given to Frank Gay and the other officers who were awarded the state police award.
In 1993, the New Orleans Police Department renamed Frank Gay as a Chief.
The magazine noted that the portrait of Frank and the two-year-old child in the portrait “remains the first full-page photograph in the Times article about the gay community in the state.”
It’s the first time a picture has been published of a couple in a newspaper’s front page and on the front page of the magazine since 1993.
The Gay Todes were featured in a 1989 article by the Times Magazine, which also featured the first portrait of two gay men, in a front-page story on the city’s AIDS crisis.
That year, Frank died.
Frank Gay died in 1997, while he was still serving as a deputy chief of police in New Mexico, the magazine reported.
Frank Gay’s death prompted the creation of the Frank Gay Foundation, which has been devoted to advancing the cause of gay rights.
In 2016, Frank G. Gay and his wife, Donna, founded a non-profit organization called the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation, or GLAAD, which promotes gay and lesbian issues and has a mission of eradicating hate crimes against gay and lesbians.
