As a PFLAG member who is very proud of her gay brother, sister and nephew, I am honored to be able to take part in our own Gay Pride festivities which begin this month in Western Washington, the greatest place in the U.S. for LGTGB rights. We've got an enormous struggle ahead of us as parents pull their children out of public schools and place them into religious ones, where they will only have their self-doubt and fears reinforced the school authorities. We need to become more like you and like Canada, where gay rights are legally human rights which are unassailable. I have always and will always stand as a proud supporter of the rights of the individual to be what s/he was born to be.
