Joseph Kolb and Michael Hoagland met in Washington DC in the Fall of 1976, as two of the founders of the Washington Gay Hotline.
Moving to Florida nine years ago, they both have become active members of the local faith-based LGBTQ community. Both are part of the Interfaith Gender & Sexuality Coalition of Palm Beach.
In March 2018 they were tasked with starting a social group for LGBT Seniors, Coffee Clatch, with Compass Community Center.
Kolb has served on the Host Committee for the Stonewall Ball for the past three years. At last year’s Ball, both were presented Compass’ the Michael Brown Memorial Faces of the Community Award.
