Bio

Tony Adams, a Roman Catholic priest who has been on an extended vacation from that vocation for many years, is Senior Features Correspondent with South Florida Gay News. He is also the 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.

To prepare for the priesthood, Tony went to live in a seminary where he was the youngest of six hundred students ranging in age from fourteen to twenty-five. After two weeks in the seminary, he realized that he and everyone else therein were gay and that it was not to be discussed. Twelve years later, after spending four years in the Vatican, he was ordained a Roman Catholic priest. He worked for five years in an urban parish in New England before deciding to explore. He became the Chief Financial Officer of a large state agency before taking a very early retirement in 2007.
