i live in australia and gay marraige isnt recognised (although tax does so they make more money off of us!)

My mum is amazing, she knew about my sexuality before I told her and she supports me completly, I really dont know what I would do if I didnt have the angel of a mother i have been blessed with.

Good on ya for being another one of those great mums!!!

Quoting Nicole:

congratulations on the engagement and i want to personally thank you for being a great mom. i have been dating my girlfriend for 5 years and both of our mothers choose to ignore the situation. like the relationship doesnt exist. she is one lucky girl. :)



Nicole, I am one in the same with you.. My mom chooses to be against my relationship with my girlfriend as well..Going as far as to out me to our pastor, which I personally thought was VERY unfair. Which ended up in the whole church tring to "PRAY" the gay out of me..  :(  That was the most embarrassing day of my life! So I also give congrats to Christine for being accepting to her daughter!! We need more parents like you! Casie

My best friend is gay and still in the closet with a lot of his family until Prop 8 passed. After that, he decided to be "out and proud" with everyone except his work (he's in a line of work where it can still be an issue, unfortunately). He declared that he wouldn't be friends with anyone any more who could vote to take his rights away. I think he's a stronger person now, but I felt horrible for his pain. Tell your daughter that there are still lots of people who believe that she's an equal human being and that we will fight for her rights. There's an HRC equal sign on this straight married woman's car to prove it.

Quoting Gabrielle:

One of the commercials that drove me and my husband crazy regarding Prop 8 was the one with the little girl. They were saying you should think of her and your kids when voting, so you should vote yes. My husband was enraged, saying that he was thinking of our 2-yr-old when voting NO. What if our daughter realized she was gay? We would never vote her rights away. I wonder if any of those people ever thought of that, that their kids could be gay. What kind of message were they sending to those kids?

Christine, congratulations to your daughter and her bride. I hope CA catches up to Mass. soon.


It WAS horrible!  My daughter was so hurt and enraged... we had to turn the TV off when those commercials came on.  It was SO hard the morning after the election... She kept saying " do people REALLY feel that way?"  15 is a hard age too, she was just "finding" herself, a little girl and a woman at the same time... It was hard to accept that prejudice still exists and is so prevalent.

I am also the mother of a gay daughter, but unfortunately, we live in California, a state that just passed a law making it illegal for her to marry.  She is only 15, but I hope that, when the time comes, our state will have repealed Prop 8 so that she can have the same opportunity that your daughter has!

Quoting Cheri:

First off, good for you in supporting her! And congrats to both of them on their engagement. My wife and I had a commitment ceremony this past May and it was the greatest day of my life. My family, her family and all of our friends were there to share in our love for one another....too bad Ohio is so conservative and our marriage isn't recognized.



Agreed. Pa is the same way. My mother is a lesbian and they dont recognize her and her wifes marriage either. All the same my son knows them both as grandma so. I dont discriminate. Congrats to your daughter and Congrats to you Cheri and to your wife as well.
