I met my partner in Minneapolis in the 70's at Sutton Place, the gay bar in downtown Minneapolis partly owned by Mr. Locksley. It was on a New Year's Eve, so like many of Mr. Locksley's Minneapolis stories, there was probably a snowstorm raging outside that night, too. Sutton Place was lots of fun. Many of the patrons of Sutton Place were quite artsy like Mr. Locksley, my partner and myself. He had great tales about the art scene in Minneapolis in the 1960's and 70's, and we have our share of art tales from Minneapolis, too. Many memories come back. My partner feels lucky to have survived the Minneapolis blizzard of 1974, the last snowstorm Mr. Locksley experienced in Minnesota. We identified with so much of his life from disco dancing at Sutton Place, collecting art, living in Minneapolis and now Lake Shore Drive in Chicago to vacationing in Palm Springs and Fort Lauderdale, where my partner and I eventually plan to retire together. He worked for gay rights and married when same-sex marriage became legal, and I'm planning to marry my partner in Illinois with the passage of gay marriage, too.
