My Story: Coming Out As The Child Of Gay Parent

It's been ages since we've had a bloggy heart to heart.  But I've decided to purposefully live my life much more open.  And sharing this story is the first step.

I hope I can put a face with a topic that often gets so built up in the media.  I hope that I can prove that gay parents are no different than straight parents.  I hope I can prove that children of gay parents are no different than children of straight parents.  I hope that I can shine a little light on why the fight for marriage equality was so critical and important.

No one wants to feel different.  No one wants to feel alone in a closet full of secrets.  Everyone deserves to have the same rights and privileges.

I'd love it if you would go to this video on YouTube, leave a comment, and start a discussion.  I promise to reply!  Does knowing this about me change anything for you?  Do you have a gay parent?  Do you have a coming out story of your own or as a child of a gay parent?  Share you story...

This was absolutely awesome! Doesn't change a thing about the way I feel about you. I am so happy that you did tell your story!

Awesome! Happy you are able to be YOU and tell your story! I'm sorry you experienced such hatred from your mother when you were a child.

I am so proud of you for sharing this. I pray it falls in the hands of kids who are going through the same thing and can learn that it is ok and that love is love. This is really beautiful. And I wouldn't think differently about you, ever. You are amazing xoxox o
