JFK and his best friend Lem

Today we honor John F Kennedy, former US President who was assassinated  November 22, 1963.  Most of us don’t need a history lesson here.  We are writing today to honor JFK on the 50-year anniversary of his assassination and also to shed some light on fairly unknown fact.  Did you know that JFK had a gay best friend?!

We had no idea.  Is that bad!? Kirk LeMoyne “Lem” Billings was a childhood friend who President Kennedy met when he was 15.  They met at Choate, a prep-school in Connecticut.  The two traveled Europe together as teens and remained life-long friends. 

What a lovely relationship and even more evidence that President Kennedy was truly a forward thinking man who was well ahead of his time.
