A gay first lady? Yes, we’ve already had one, and here are her love letters.

Washington Post 6/20/19: A gay first lady? Yes, we’ve already had one, and here are her love letters.. In the summer of 1910, Evangeline Simpson Whipple told the caretaker of her home not to move anything in her absence. The wealthy widow was going on a trip, but would be back soon, she said. She never returned. When she died in 1930, she was buried at her request in Italy next to the love of her life — a woman with whom she had a relationship that spanned nearly 30 years. That woman, Rose Cleveland, had served as first lady.
