An important part of National Coming Out Day--and changing hearts and minds at any time--is telling our stories. I therefore wanted to share a collection of recent stories about LGBT parents. Unfortunately, lesbian moms and our kids seem to be the only ones anybody is writing about. (The fictional gay dads on ABC's new Modern Family are getting a lot of coverage, and that's good, but I'm talking about real families here.) I did include one story by the mother of a gay son in Maine, who takes a multi-generational look at her family to argue for marriage equality.
If any readers know of other recent stories of LGBT parents and our kids to help round out the G, B, and T, please leave a comment (and a link). In the meantime, enjoy the following mostly L stories, many of which were in mainstream publications and may help with that heart-mind transformation.
