Openly Gay Lydia's Married Life With Beautiful Wife

The former journalist of The New York Times, Lydia is openly gay. In an interview with Out magazine on 31 March 2017, she said that she was always different than the other girls of her age. When she met other lesbians in her college days, she figured out that she was also a lesbian and was sure that she doesn’t want a husband in her life.
