When Francine came out to her very strict mother, it seriously was one of the most inspiring touching things I’ve ever seen. For those of you who are struggling with coming out to your parents, there’s hope.
I hate these gross generalizations about PoC parents who, in white liberals’ eyes, are inherently “more homophobic” (because of their ~culture~) than culturally “enlightened” western parents. As if nonwhite parents of incapable of loving and supporting their children. Maybe its because society likes to focus on the narratives which make our parents out to be the backwards ones.
Why can’t we talk about beautiful things like this?
