“A guy once told me it wasn’t okay for me to have children with another woman. He said that it wasn’t good for the child. I was shocked. What exactly isn’t good for the child? To have two mothers who love their children? I had a difficult relationship with my mother. I don’t have contact with her anymore. If I had two moms who loved me I think it would have been beautiful. I don’t think it matters if it’s a dad and a mom, just that kids have parents who love them. That’s what’s most important. If I have a child, I hope I’ll be a good mom.”

“People told me I was too public about my sexuality.”

“They’re worried I’m not going to give them grandchildren.”

“When my mother found out I was gay she stopped going to church.”
