My grandma first told me the story of Roy when I was a teenager on the verge of coming out as a lesbian. I've spent the 10 years since wondering and occasionally prying. Now that we're in the thick of working on the documentary, I re-interviewed her and asked why she had told me the story in the first place.
Turns out, she too is curious.
"I'm 70-years-old, Casey," she told me. "Am I going to die without ever knowing the truth?"
I'm hoping I can find some answers and honor Roy in a way that makes my grandma proud.
