9/11 SPECIAL EXTRAS: Father Mychal Judge

leave a comment »

Father Mychal Judge left a lasting impression upon the thousands of New York City residents he touched over the course of his life, and I was blessed to speak to three of those people: Tom Ryan, New York City’s first openly-gay firefighter and Father Mike’s colleague; Brendan Fay, a prominent gay activist and Mychal’s close friend; and Larry Kirwan, lead singer of the Celtic rock band Black 47, which Mychal saw in concert weekly.

The following are excerpts from my conversations with these men. Please note that there are no internal edits on these cuts.
