Supporting LGBT Family & Friends Support

Sally Field received the 2012 Human Rights Campaign Ally For Equality Award, and delivered a very touching and emotional speech about her gay son Sam below. 

This is no performance, and Sally is not reading a script. This is her real life and her true feelings and thoughts. She had not addressed her son’s sexuality before in public stating that she felt it was his business and not hers to do so.  Through this speech Sally provides an example and understanding in supporting members of the LGBT community that we wish every parent and friend had.

Sam said of his mom “Being gay was just one more thing she loved about me.”

We hope that these words will long be remembered and shared and that our society will grow to understand, love and accept all the differences that make up our great, diverse and wonderful world.

 ”There are so many children who struggle to understand and embrace their sexuality in families who do not welcome them, with parents that somehow find it acceptable to shut them out their hearts and their homes, and that I find unacceptable.”—Sally Field
