Meteorologist Adam Joseph made Philadelphia history in August 2014, when he became the city’s first major on-air news personality to come out publicly. But the subsequent 15 months are what have proved truly groundbreaking for Joseph, as he and his partner, Karl, have watched their son, Jacob, grow and thrive.
