“My partner and I have three children and we thought they’d want to join us in the ‘Amy’s Song’ project. We talked about it as a family for two weeks, but they decided not to participate. All the kids in school know our children have two lesbian mothers and two gay fathers and we’re very active parents in the community. But our children told us they were too afraid to join the project. They were scared they would get bullied at school. They were afraid people would think they were gay if they were a part of this project. Some kids tell them that if your parents are gay, you will become gay too, like it’s contagious. It was emotional to hear. For us it seemed so normal to support a project like this so we were surprised, but it was good for us to talk about it together. We knew then that it was even more important for us to be a part of this project.”
