My dad is gay. 2 marriages and 5 kids later, we find out. It has just always been put as an abomination. My dad, a believer in Christ, had fought with his feelings from about the age of 9. He prayed and prayed for God to take those feelings away. It NEVER happened. My dad is no more or less a dad today than he was while I was growing up. He finally felt he had to “come out” while in his 40s. He has never felt freer to live life. Although, it was strange at first (not simply because he is gay but because for most of my life, I didn’t know – life was different), seeing my dad sincerely free and happy for the first time in my life is so awesome. He has been in a committed relationship with another man (living together, working together on life!) for over 9 years now. Although, I do not consider him another “dad,” my kids call him Grandpa Aaron. To me, he is simply the man that makes my dad happy and a great addition to our, already diverse, family! This is my father's story, which I think is enough to prove the gay marriage should be legal.
