Former Pennsylvania Senator Harris
Wofford on Sunday announced that he's marrying a man.
Wofford, 90, announced his upcoming
nuptials to Matthew Charlton, 40, in a The
New York Times op-ed.
The wedding comes almost 20 years after
his wife Clare's death from acute leukemia.
In “Finding Love Again, This Time
With a Man,” Wofford wrote that he doesn't categorize himself
“based on the gender of those [he] love[s].”
“I had a half-century of marriage
with a wonderful woman, and now am lucky for a second time to have
Wofford said that he met his future
husband on a Florida beach in 2001.
“We both felt the immediate spark,
and as time went on, we realized that our bond had grown into love,
he said. “Other than with Clare, I had never felt love blossom
this way before.”
