Greg Bourke and his husband, Michael DeLeon, have been partnered 40 years, and were legally married in 2004 in Ontario Canada. They have two adopted adult children, Isaiah (age 24) and Bryson (age 23). Greg and Michael were the named plaintiffs in the Kentucky Marriage Equality lawsuit (Bourke vs. Beshear) that was merged with Obergefell vs. Hodges at the US Supreme Court and resulted in nationwide Marriage Equality in June 2015.

Bourke retired from Humana in June 2018 after a 24-year career in Data Analytics with Humana Military Healthcare. Bourke was a founding member of the Humana PRIDE LGBT Network Resource Group which led Humana to perfect 100 scores on the Human Rights Campaign Corporate Equality Index for the five years before his retirement. He is currently employed as Health Economist for Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield.

DeLeon has just retired from GE/GE Appliances after 33 years and a long, distinguished career in information technology, database administration and project management.
