Larry Whitson is a retired special education teacher and school principal and now works as an artist focusing mainly on book arts and calligraphy. He has spent the past few years intentionally developing practices that enhance his sense of happiness. He occasionally teaches classes in the practice of happiness at a local yoga studio.


Larry came of age as a gay man in the post-Stonewall, pre-HIV/AIDS era and his view of the world as a gay man has been, in a great deal, shaped by his larger concern for civil rights, justice, equality and peace. He is a founding member of the Cascade AIDS Project in Portland and been active in several gay-related social, educational and political organizations.

Larry lives with Patrick, his husband of 15 years, in a 119 year old cottage that hangs precariously on a hill in Portland. He enjoys reading, traveling, cooking and playing silly jokes on his sisters.

Patrick Alexander, 46, is a recent Business and Leadership graduate from Marylhurst University and a small business owner whose company supplies and maintains tropical plants within offices and residencies. While finishing his studies at Marylhurst University, Patrick focused his business degree on Organizational Communication and the elements that create an Inclusive Trust Culture within the context of a business environment. Patrick believes that trust is the core to economic prosperity and the goal of achieving a common purpose, whatever the common purpose may be...to increase production, superior customer responsiveness, or improved efficiency of operations.


Patrick also happens to be a gay man, who started living a whole life, when he was 30 years old. Until his “coming out,” Patrick’s fears of society’s views kept him from being open about his sexual orientation. Patrick’s experiences are similar to many others in that his life was molded by fear until one day fear no longer mattered as much. Today Patrick is married to Larry Whitson and they just celebrated their 15th anniversary.
