  1. I was happy to see this brought up in the online lecture because I had the opportunity to see him when he came to Longwood’s campus. He was a great speaker and I learned about his lifestyle due to his upbringing from his lesbian parents. A lot that was in his response above was discussed when I saw his speech on campus.

    I think it’s cool that he expressed that the values he learned was in Boys Scouts and that he took a stand for gay rights in his hometown. I believe that he is a great role model for activists with the same beliefs and that like it was said in the audio lecture, heterosexual couples can learn a lot from lesbian couples when it comes to taking care of children.
