Winston Johnson, a well-known Atlanta resident, is featured in a video by CNN titled "Growing old openly gay."
The first gay couple married in New York as well as a late-life lesbian are also featured in the short video clip.
Johnson and his partner, Leon Allen, are the namesakes for an Atlanta Human Rights Campaign community service award. Johnson speaks of Allen, who died in 2006, in the clip.
The couple became good friends with Coretta Scott King and encouraged her to use her high profile to advocate for LGBT equality.
