    When my sister came out, there was an accordion trio on hand to perform the music of Sly and the Family Stone. Debutantes in white dresses and boys with matching cummberbunds and bow ties drank from the waters of a gurgling champagne fountain. The entire affair, staged in my parents’ old house in Devon, Pennsylvania, was an anachronism, to be sure — but as wingdings go, it was tons of fun. It was 1975.
