Famous Names With LGBT Children

source
The lovely Jaclyn shared this link in my post about Gwen Stefani stating she would support her sons if they ever came out as gay. This article was written by The Advocate and talks about famous parents who have LGBT+ children and how, these days, they fully support them and all those who identify as such.

I would love to live in a day where stories like these, and the one I shared about Gwen, weren't something to be shared. I wish all parents could accept and love their children. I don't see that happening though, especially with people holding so tightly to what religion says about sexuality.

At any rate, I do like hearing these stories. It might be a "of course!" reaction for me (who does not yet have children) but it's not like that for everyone. Therefore, it's good to show that there are families out there that are supportive and loving and that are fighting for LGBT+ rights, whether they always did or they started to after learning about their own children.

Thanks to Jaclyn for linking me to this article. I thought it was worth making a post on so that others could check it out for themselves. It includes people like Cher, Magic Johnson, Sally Fields, and more.

No problem! I read the article and thought it went together with your post about Gwen. "I wish all parents could accept and love their children. I don't see that happening though, especially with people holding so tightly to what religion says about sexuality." <-- I 100% agree. The love of a parent towards a child should be unconditional. I know that's how I love my son. Thanks for the shout out!

Well, as a parent, I don't really understand how one could NOT support one's children. All I want for my son is to be happy. And if his happiness is with a Martian, then a Martian is who I will love - for my son.

Hey, I'm sure you've heard about the "Hate Bill 1840"? I hope it doesn't get rolled out here in TN. But if it does, I hope the state suffers for it, that's some blatant discrimination right there.
