As a gay man I have much to be thankful this Thanksgiving. Leo and I just celebrated 35 years together. I never would have imagined this as a possibility years ago. Leo’s daughter Kris and her husband will not be able to join us because they are in South Carolina. Leo’s son Patrick and Leo’s youngest daughter Erin and the grandchildren will be with us.
Religious Right and Family
Religious right persons spew words about gay persons being anti-family. They refuse to see reality. In my experience, it is often the gay family member who takes care of aging parents. Many of us also have families of our own.
I hope that all of you have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
