Report Confirms Bias Against Gay Families

Every few weeks there’s a new report addressing gay marriage or LGBT inequities in America. The latest has appeared on the AP discussing what gay parents have to deal with in states that do not recognize their relationship & how this may effect their children.

There will be a concerted effort during the legislative debate to highlight the challenges facing children of gays and lesbians. If you care about children, you should care that the parents don't have the legal tools to take the best care of them. The root of my activism is denial of equal treatment of my children. One child told my daughter she was not allowed to come over to our house because we weren't really a family. For them, it's a constant source of sadness and hurtfulness.
