Hey everybody, it's June and that means

Gay Pride week is coming up!!

You go girls!

(and boys of course, but you boys please remember to cover your testicles when you are on TV.)



Last year I wrote about my friend, A., who asked me to
meet her female life partner.

I went to Tim Horton's to meet them not really knowing what to expect.

Of course what I found were two perfectly ordinary people,
companions who were lucky enough to have found each other
and were working hard to make a life together.

We had a great visit.



Then last December I was invited to an extended family Christmas party.

While there I met another lesbian couple,
one of whom is my second cousin.

Both young women accepted and loved dearly by their families.


And I was struck by how times have changed.   



I don't think gay people have it particularly easy in 2012
but I do think it is getting better.



And I love that CTV commercial advertising Gay Pride Week.

You know -


The one that ends with the words


YOU BELONG!



Have a great Gay Pride Week everyone!
