Labels don’t define Who I am

Today is the coming out day. To celebrate, I thought that I’d share my own coming-out story with all of you. Everyone’s coming-out story is different. Mine is not necessarily representative of mainstream LGBTQ culture, but it’s a coming out story nevertheless. It is a difficult story for me to tell for many reasons – but it’s part of the healing process. Continue reading “Labels don’t define Who I am” >

Happiness Makes A Family Complete

Happiness Makes A Family Complete

family completeWithout happiness, a family cannot be complete. Happiness provides a healthy environment for a family. Children cannot learn and grow without a healthy environment. There are straight couples who are not happy and it makes it very difficult for their children. There are gay couples who are happy and it’s reflected in how they bring up their children. Happiness no longer means being in a traditional family. A family filled with love and happiness is complete.

Why Kids With Same Sex Parents Aren’t Different From Other Kids

A lot has changed in the last 57 years.

That figure has dropped to below half of the families in this country.

Racial Identity – Twins – Love is love

Twins Born Showing Different ‘Racial Identities’

I’ve been reading a lot of posts and stories about twins born showing different skin tones. It shows us how fluid and subjective these racial categories are that we are so accustomed to.
