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)
