A Belated Congrats

’89 Joe McDermott married Michael Culpepper at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church, Seattle, in 2013. Joe submitted the news but says he never saw it – or other same-sex marriage announcements – in the magazine. After reading a note in the Spring ’21 issue of Gonzaga Magazine affirming that the University is supportive of the LGBTQ community, Joe submitted his announcement again.
