Ten years ago, who would have thought that we would see a sitting governor officiate the gay wedding of a sitting representative? The progress the Northeast has made in gay rights over the last decade is really astounding, and makes me proud to hail from the region I do.

http://www.nytimes.com/2012/07/08/fashion/weddings/barney-frank-wedding-jim-ready.html

Quote:
Mr. Frank, 72, and Mr. Ready, 42, were married here on Saturday in a low-key ceremony on the banks of the Charles River. Gov. Deval L. Patrick of Massachusetts officiated. The guests including Nancy Pelosi, the Democratic House minority leader, as well as Senator John Kerry and Representatives Dennis J. Kucinich and Steny H. Hoyer.


Quote:
They had long discussions about marriage; Mr. Frank wanted to be married while still serving in Washington. Mr. Ready was worried about the public scrutiny. But he remembered how he felt in high school in Tewksbury, Mass., when Mr. Frank came out publicy.

“The kids that are going to see us, and feel strong enough to be able to come out and be who they are. That gives me more encouragement that I’m doing the right thing,” he said.

Is there one?

Traditionally, 'male' covers it.

In this case, it kind of seemed like the reverse occurred, as it sounds like the man he was originally with was older as well. What's the term for a male who likes older individuals?
