What your Neighbors are Saying...

My gay son, who is grown up now, very productive and extremely intelligent, always reminds me of our first real talk about his sexual orientation. My initial reaction was to tell him that he needed to get married to a woman, and hide his sexuality because he will never be accepted in our society today. I was afraid for him. He told me that he cannot do that. Now, I look at him and think how brave he is and I am very proud of him for his courage to be himself and to not be afraid.

I love all my children. Each one of them is very special to me because they are made in their own unique way. I love Kennedy because she is caring, compassionate, intelligent and loving not because she is my gay daughter. The fact that my daughter is gay and is so actively committed to her work in what matters to her most, LGBTQI activism, is just icing on the cake.
