Find A Grave Memorial# 161872368

The Oldest Gay Couple in America tells the moving and, at times, frightening story of Bruhs Mero and Gean Harwood, as they journey through the gay and lesbian scene of New York City from 1927 to the present. Covering Harwood's childhood, their professional life in the arts, the fear and repression of the McCarthy era, and their triumphant "coming out" in the eighties, it is an intimate look at the strife and joy of two lives intertwined. Gean Harwood was born in Auburn, NY, and learned to be a musician there, but the comparatively inhospitable climate for gays in an Upstate New York town like Auburn led him to New York City, where he met Mero at a party in 1929, and the two men soon became partners in both life and music, remaining together over many decades to follow. Bruhs and Gean were together for 66 years. Sixty Years with Bruhs & Gean is a lively 90-minute musical that traces their remarkable lives: both funny and touching, their story covers the breadth of 20th century gay history, from the early-closeted days of the Great Depression and World War II, into the McCarthy era, Stonewall and beyond.
Together from 1929 to 1995: 66 years.
Bruhs Mero (February 15, 1911 - August 10, 1995)
L. Eugene “Gean” Harwood (1909-2006)

Bill T. Jones is an American artistic director, choreographer and dancer. Jones has received numerous awards for his work and is the co-founder of the Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company. Arnie Zane was an American photographer, choreographer, and dancer. Zane was immensely interested in the human body, particularly its gestures, its movement, and its essence. Zane met Jones, the man who would later become his lifelong partner, while visiting his Alma mater. The story goes that the 22-year-old Zane was immediately enamored of Bill T. Jones (a freshman studying dance and theater at SUNY) when he spied him across campus in 1971. During that spring semester, Zane convinced Jones to travel to Amsterdam with him and explore their burgeoning romantic relationship. Jones and Bjorn Amelan found a second chapter in love after both losing their long-term partners. Jones’s spent the last 20 years and more living and collaborating with Amelan, who had a long romantic and professional relationship with famed fashion designer Patrick Kelly before he died. Since they met in 1992, the two have successfully entwined their creative work and domestic lives.
Together from 1971 to 1988: 17 years.
