Let me tell you about a few:
Micah - What a doll. Kind, considerate, deep thinker, artistic, seeker of goodness.
Craig - Walked the line for awhile, until he could claim his life as his own. Conservative, searching, pondering, creative.
Tyler - Intense. Fun, serious, flamboyant, loves learning, great farm-hand.
Nick - Sweet. Sees the world through a lens. Trustworthy, goofy, committed.
Cortney - Gorgeous. Fighter, adventurer, loving, supportive, amazing, hates stereotypes.
Adam - Beginning. Inquisitive, writer, trail-blazer. Honest.
Chris - Artist. Angry, creator, diligent, searching, giver of light.
Cade - Hilarious. Generous, conversationalist, explorer, great uncle.
Max - Happy. Kind, devoted, family-man.
Notice any similarities? Any differences? Anything that would jump out at you and say, "I am gay, therefore I am not of worth or of value?" No. Not a damn thing.
These are "my" boys, and I will go to fight for them any day, and I know they would/have do/done the same for me.
