For all the mothers and fathers of gay folks out there
At the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force Conference, I was fortunate to see a video clip of a very cool parent from New Jersey. This mother wasn't afraid to talk about her gay daughter with coworkers for fear of their rejection of her. Rather, she was upset that she hadn't yet had the chance to participate in the conversations her coworkers regularly had about their own children's marriages simply because her daughter didn't have the right to legally marry. How cool is that? Pride and joy trump shame.
