I Support Gay Rights

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 26,542 People

    I wasn't going to write this story simply

    because it makes my heart hurt to do so, but following the events that happened to my gay nephew a few days ago, I feel like it's needed. My nephew (let's just call him Ash) is 9 years old, and a total sweetheart. He's always been a very happy child, until recently. A few days...

    Congratulations to all the gays

    I thinks it's important

    for everybody of any sexual orientation, gender identity, race or religion to have equal rights, I believe that all people are equal. I don't get it when people say "I'm religious, you can't be gay." If you don't like gay sex, don't have gay sex, if you don't like gay marriage...

    Today a middle-aged woman walked passed me

    and shouted over, calling me a "******-loving parasite" because I had this badge on my bag. Words can't describe how angry and disgusted I am that she would say such a thing. I guess people fear what they don't understand, right? Or they are just complete ********.

    I think America just took a huge step forward,

    that's gonna be remembered in history as it's should be, and I wanna throw our congratulations from over here in Sweden. I just hope people won't use this as a silencing tactic and say that equality has been achieved because of this. Marriage equality is far from the biggest...

    I'm about done with this thing people call

    freedom. I oppose gay marriage and the only thing I get in return is hate. I can't do anything. I'll see you guys in the next life. I hope there is a god. I'm gonna do what the people want not what I do. if you are reading this... it's too late I'm already dead.

    This ally celebrated,

    and cried tears of joy yesterday. This historic event happened in my lifetime. It is sad that it needed to be decided by the Supreme Court, but I'm glad it was.

    As a lesbian who's been out

    for over 10 years, I'm a huge supporter and fighter for equal rights between everyone. I don't think gender, age or race should have anything to do with being legally allowed to marry whomever you love.

    This is America, and it's about time we

    actually started treating people equally like we're supposed to be doing. It's good to know that people regardless of gender have the right to marry now. Seeing the ultra-Conservatives coming out of the woodwork in outrage does nothing but amuse me. It's too late for them to do...

    I know a lot of gay people.

    My sister has been with her girlfriend for over a year and they are adorable. I honestly don't see what people have against LGBT people. If they are happy and in love with someone of the same sex, then so be it.

    If your child is gay,

    it doesn't mean you failed as a parent. If you disown your child because they are gay, then you failed as a parent.

    Why is it so hard for some people to understand

    that sexual preferences aren't hetero or homosexual, it's your sexual attraction that identifies you as hetero or homosexual. Straight men and women can like anal sex without being homosexual men (yes, someone claimed that women who like anal must secretly be homosexual men) I...

    I'm not sure why anyone is still debating the

    today: Marriage is not about religion. Atheists marry. Marriage is not about procreation. The infertile marry. Marriage is about love. That's it. And that's beautiful.
