Prayers For Bobby

Has anyone seen this?  This is a movie called Prayers for Bobby, a Lifetime movie based on the true story of a mother (played by Sigourney Weaver) who couldn’t accept her gay son.  Here is the IMDB Synopsis:

“True story of Mary Griffith, gay rights crusader, whose teenage son committed suicide due to her religious intolerance. Based on the book of the same title by Leroy Aarons.”

I watched this movie on YouTube through my Blu-Ray player and boy did I cry my eyes out.  This story is so emotional that I had to pause it a couple of times because I was missing the movie because I was crying so hard.

This is a movie that every religious anti-gay parent and family should watch before they decide to give up on or throw their child away for being gay.

Robin Tyler

Last night was the monthly PFLAG meeting here in Bakersfield.  Robin Tyler, who is the first out lesbian comedian was the speaker.  She was talking about the history of gay rights and she wasn’t just very funny but also informative.

After she finished with her speech, everyone wanted to have their picture taken with her and luckily I was able to get her to pose for one with me.  I personally hate taking pictures, but I am very proud of this one because it was with a legend.
