More than most, our family understands the movements of history.

We were among those who first publicly and proudly identified ourselves as a family with a parent who is lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender (LGBT). Over the course of 30 years, we have witnessed first hand how attitudes are changing.

Now, as we watch history being made at the Supreme Court, we have a lot to say about the love that makes a family.

We are part of a generation of modern families who define ourselves by the love that binds us together. As a cultural struggle has played out in the public square over marriage equality, it’s the love that exists in all families –whether their parents are gay or straight –that should be paramount to any discussion about marriage, and there is no debating the love that we have for each other.
