60 Years and Counting….

Congratulations to CLAGS members Gustavo Archilla
(l) and Elmer Lokkins (r), who celebrated their 60th
anniversary together last month. Gustavo, 90, and Elmer, 86,
met in September, 1945 when Gustavo caught Elmer’s eye at
Columbus Circle. Gus and Elmer both worked at the CUNY
Graduate Center in the registrar’s office for many years. They
are also celebrating their second anniversary of legal marriage
— the pair eloped to Canada soon after the ban on same-sex
marriage was lifted in Ontario. Independent filmmaker David Wilson is making a
documentary about their life together.
