- Denise And George's Airbnb Symbol
Like many folks in Tucson, Denise and George are in love with the Sonoran desert, beautiful open sky, and sunny weather. Denise is from Oak Park, IL, a suburb of Chicago, and George is a Tucson native. Both of us have had previous long-term marriages with wonderful people and now in our 6th decade of life, we happily find ourselves in a new domestic partnership that is very fulfilling.
Denise’s life has always revolved around her desire to engage in projects that promote social justice. She is an educator and social activist at heart and has been engaged in a variety of venues and social issues throughout her life. In her mid-50s, Denise earned a Ph.D. in Sociology. Since moving to Tucson, she volunteers with several community organizations, works part-time at Tohono Chul, a beautiful desert garden in Oro Valley, teaches and plays an African drum, hikes, and bikes.
George’s life has revolved around the core issues of work and family. He’s had experience with many types of jobs with an emphasis on trucking, construction, and landscaping. As a Tucson native, he has family ties to both horseracing and mariachi music. George loves to pursue outdoor physical activities with Denise and also is learning to play the Djembe, an African drum. He also works now at Tohono Chul, which is where he and Denise met.
Both George and Denise engage in a wonderful Tucson experience called Global Chant and we are both LGBT allies. We also pursue a whole foods, plant-based lifestyle with George doing most of the cooking. We now have a (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) page called, Happy Vegan Couple where we post vegan cooking videos. We invite you to join our group and receive our videos when we post them. We are trying to help people incorporate vegan cooking into their lives.
Denise and George are happy to invite airbnb guests to their beautiful home. All visitors are welcome that bring a positive spirit and a caring heart toward all groups of people.
