We’ve all read the grisly stories of parents throwing their children out of their homes, disowning them simply for their sexuality or gender.

Some of you will have even experienced it.

But it’s not all bad – there are parents out there who don’t just tolerate LGBT pride, but celebrate it, replete in rainbows as they support their kids in the way all parents should.

They should be loved and treasured – so that’s exactly what we’re going to do here.

Just look at this proud dad

All parents should be like this


This is the same wonderful mother, first in the 70s…

And then with the same sign, three decades later.

This special photo was taken in 1974, just five years after the Stonewall riots

It’s all about support…

Because look how happy it makes the kids.

Seriously, though.

This is special.

Hell yes he is.

Look at the love!

The joy!

The unabashed celebration of your kid!

The more parents who accept and celebrate their kids for who they are, the better the world becomes.

Thanks, mum.

Thanks, dad.

And thank you to all the parents out there who would support their kid to the ends of the earth.
