Hey N. Carolina, This Amazing Couple From Your State Has Been Together 50 Years

by Jeremy Kinser April 11, 2016


If North Carolina lawmakers anyone needs a reminder that LGBT couples deserve every right and respect granted their hetero counterparts, you can do no better than catching up with Lennie and Pearl. The two ladies of a certain age were captured in this video from 2014 and at the time they were looking forward to celebrating their 50th anniversary as a couple, after having been married the year before.

“I guess at 90, we don’t have to worry about anyone saying anything to us or about us…we were married always in our hearts,” they reveal during the interview.

Oh yeah, and they just happen to hail from North Carolina, home to the ridiculously discriminatory HB2 bill.

Watch a video celebrating the couple’s history below.
