A gay child doesn’t mean you failed as a parent.

Being the mother of a gay son, this really hit home for me when I saw it today.

I’m glad my son is proud of who he is and where he’s going. I’ve learned so much from him.

Gay pride.

Over on Facebook, I had this to say about so many people changing their profile pictures to look like this:

You know what, it warms my heart so much to see this outpouring of support for the Supreme Court victory that now recognizes that gay people can marry and enjoy all the benefits of a male-female marriage. Seeing all the rainbow colors on so many profiles–even people I never expected–gives me have hope for this country, that perhaps we are finally on our way to peace between diverse groups of people and we can just all see each other as fellow Americans. We still have a looooooong way to go, and maybe I’m just being naive or “malignantly optimistic,” but it is a start. Congratulations to all my gay friends.
