Tony Adams, a Roman Catholic priest who has been on an extended vacation from that vocation for many years, is Senior Features Correspondent with SFGN. He’s also editor of the 20 member queer arts and culture blog, Queer New York.
Tony and his husband Chris have been together for 27 years and were married in Connecticut in December 2008. They divide their time between homes in Fort Lauderdale, Manhattan and Connecticut.
In November of 2011, Father Tony wrote A Letter From The Bishop, a play about three gay priests and their Catholic bishop who is against marriage equality. It’s also about promises, obedience and conscience. Most of us are familiar with the latent homophobia of the Roman Catholic bishops of America, but very little is known about the soul of the gay priest who must follow that agenda. Or not.
The first reading of the play was hosted by The Stonewall National Museum and Archives in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, on Monday February 13, 2012 . It is now headed for New York City.
