KIDS

"There was nothing hard about growing up with a gay father, the hard part was growing up with a gay father in a society that neither accepted or embraced that."  - Alison Wearing, writer/performer

"I am...opposed to...arguments that send an implicit, harmful message to [kids of gay parents] that if they are facing challenges or trauma or bullying or discrimination or depression, etc., they should gloss over their own truth and not seek out support. The result is self-censorship for the sake of the larger LGBT family community that needs to maintain a certain façade to the rest of the world. Because, you know, the world has to see that "the kids are alright." - Abigail Warner, Families Like Mine
