I am glad to be finally writing my first post, yes, the first of our blog was written by Gil. He actually set up the blog and practically kicked me in the blogesphere...by force...yes, no democracy around here.
I would like to dedicate my first post to several bloggers who are living or have recently lived in my dear home country of Brazil, most notoriously Danielle, Rachel, Jim, Ginger, Stephanie, Fiona, Leo, Adam,
The Reader, Sara and Nate, Eric, Emily and little Gabriela and many others who have inspired us to start writing about our experiences in the United States.
We were finally able to get married in Toronto, Canada, on July 2nd, 2010, after living together in the US since 1998, we have lived in the Metro Boston area since 2001.
I left Brazil in July of 1998 in search of peace of mind which we couldn't enjoy in Brazil due to homophobic persecution, Gil came exactly 3 months after me.
We are very happy together, I am with the person I love and we have been enjoying our piece of the American Dream for many years now, life is good.
