The Washington Blade visited New Jersey and profiled this cute couple – who have been together for over 50 years! The story begins:

VILLAS, N.J.—Vince Grimm had just left the U.S. Army Security Agency after a two-year deployment in Korea when he returned to the Reading, Pa., gay bar scene in 1961. A 20-year-old farm boy quickly caught his eye at the Big Apple Bar

“We saw each other on and off at the bar,” said Grimm. “He was cute, blonde and kind of flamboyant — just my type.

More than five decades later, Will Kratz pointed out with a hearty chuckle during an interview at their home that overlooks Delaware Bay a few miles north of New Jersey’s southernmost point that they consummated their relationship in the back of a 1957 Cadillac…

Good reading. The couple were ahead of their time, actually producing and performing in drag shows pre-Stonewell in Reading, PA of all places. They had the backing of the local crime boss!
