Saluting Dads

I am excited to see that gay dads are finally getting some positive attention this Father’s day!

Specifically, I was thrilled to see MSNBC’s great article this morning about a gay couple raising three adoptive sons. Their story, however, is not unique . . . they are just two of the many dedicated GLBT people raising children and helping our nation’s struggling foster care system.

Also in "gay dads news", Rick Warren, author of The Purpose Driven Life, has opened his Southern California megachurch to gay Fathers this Father’s Day. What a refreshing change from the usual comments we hear from right-wing evangelicals in regards to LGBT parenting (and LGBT people in general)!

I hope you enjoy these great articles and that they put you in the spirit for Father’s Day.

And Happy Father’s Day to all of our PFLAG dads as well!
