Lexingtonian Says There's Nowhere Else He'd Rather Be

Jun 6, 2017

71 year old Dominic Martina says his is a quintessential American story; growing up in the cultural revolution of the 1960's, being drafted into the Vietnam War, coming out the closet as a gay Catholic Italian American, watching several of his friends die of AIDS in the 1980’s and 90’s, and after living much of his life in San Diego, returning to his boyhood home in Lexington.  In this part of his StoryCorps conversation Martina talks about what his life has been like since coming back to Kentucky.
