Portia Fagan

February 4, 1938 – February 27, 2009

Portia June Fagan was born in Kalamazoo, attended Richland High School, graduated from Western Michigan University, and had a long career as a tax preparer and real estate broker.  In 1994, she came out as lesbian in the Kalamazoo Gazette to “break down stereotypes.”  Fagan and her life partner Janice O’Dell retired to Arizona in the early 2000s.
