Brendan Fay, a filmmaker and activist, is a founder of St. Pat’s for All, a parade in Queens known for its spirit of hospitality.
“As an Irish gay immigrant, I was excluded from all the St. Patrick’s Day parades in the city and arrested when I tried to march in them,” said Mr. Fay, who is from Drogheda, Ireland, and was instrumental in a long-fought and ultimately successful movement to allow the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community to march in the NYC St. Patrick’s Day Parade.
This year, Mr. Fay’s Sunnyside-Woodside parade, celebrating its 20th anniversary on March 3, will have the Broadway actress Fionnula Flanagan and the dancer and choreographer Seán Curran as grand marshals.
Mr. Fay and his husband, Tom Moulton, a pediatric hematologist/oncologist, will also be marching in the Fifth Avenue parade on March 16, holding a banner with members of the Irish L.G.B.T. group founded by Mr. Fay, Lavender and Green Alliance.
Mr. Fay, 60, and Dr. Moulton, 61, were among the first same-sex couples to cross the border in 2003 to marry in Toronto, Canada. Next, Mr. Fay helped couples like Edie Windsor and Thea Spyer navigate the process. It was Ms. Windsor’s 2013 U.S. Supreme Court case that led to the overturning of the Defense of Marriage Act.
Mr. Fay and Dr. Moulton share their two-family rowhouse in Astoria, Queens, with their cats, Finn and Fionnula.
MEOW I’m up by 6:30. I just wake up, or one of the cats nudges me. I take a moment to say hello to the morning and take a breath. I repeat what my dad always used to say, “It’s a good day, another day above ground.”
JOGGING, LISTENING While Tom’s sleeping in, I feed the cats, rinse my face and hands and get ready for a jog in Astoria Park. I kiss Tom goodbye, and I take a cup of coffee with me. The park is only a 10-minute walk away, but it can take me 20 or more minutes to get there because I’m stopping to say hello to people in the neighborhood. I run along the side facing the East River. I begin by listening to the “On Being With Krista Tippett” podcast or Marian Finucane on Raidió Teilifís Éireann. I end with reflective music by folksingers Jack Harrison or Mercedes Sosa.
PHONE HOME Once I get home, I start making a bowl of porridge — oatmeal, walnuts, raisins and milk — and put the kettle on for tea. I’m the middle of seven children, and I call my sisters Carmel, Mary and Joan back home in Drogheda. Sometimes Tom joins me for breakfast. This is also the time when I catch up on world news and read poetry by Pádraig Ó Tuama.
GUESS WHO’S COMING TO BRUNCH? By 9:20 or so, I’m out the door meeting friends, and by 10:30 I sometimes call Tom to tell him I’m bringing people home for brunch. We’ve been married for 16 years — he’s gotten used to my doing this at the last minute. Tom always makes various pancakes and bacon and eggs. If he’s out of town, I do the cooking, which means we either have porridge and tea or go to Zorbas, the Greek restaurant around the corner.
CHORES Once our friends leave around 1, Tom and I do chores. Tom does the food shopping, and he bakes the communion bread for Dignity NY’s evening church service. This is the L.G.B.T. Catholic group where we met in 1996. We pitch in to do laundry and house cleaning.
MEET-UPS In the afternoon, I work on various projects with other organizations and activists. Jesús Lebrón, my friend of over 30 years, frequently comes by to help. The Irish L.G.B.T. group Lavender and Green Alliance is celebrating its 25th anniversary, so I’m doing research for an exhibit. I’m also working with Tom on the statewide campaign to pass the sickle cell bill. Later, I go visit friends who are in the hospital or nursing homes. Sometimes, I go to an Irish traditional music session. Niall O’Leary is a favorite.
WINGING THE NEXT MEAL During the week, I eat with Tom, but on Sundays he’s with members of Dignity NY. I sometimes join them for dinner or eat with friends.
CATCHING UP I spend the rest of the evening catching up on emails, texts and social media and watching documentaries. I recently saw one on Albert Cashier, a transgender Irish-American soldier during the Civil War, and “Decade of Fire,” about the burning of the South Bronx in the 1970s. I also respond to requests for screenings of my films on the gay-pioneer priest the Rev. John J. McNeill, or the Rev. Mychal F. Judge, a chaplain with the City Fire Department, who died in the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.
READING IN BED After I feed the cats, I make a cup of ginger tea or hot chocolate. Before I close my eyes, I do a bit of light reading — Malachy McCourt’s “Death Need Not Be Fatal” is oftentimes near at hand. After 20 to 30 minutes, I put the book down and pause for a moment to feel grateful for the day.B:
