As we approached Father's Day, there were some pretty cool lists about dads floating around the Internet. So, of course, I had to make a list of my own, ensuring families with double daddies (or one great gay dad) are represented.
I originally intended to intro my list with lots of statistics showing how more and more Americans are in favor of same-sex marriage and adoption. Or how same-sex couples will be counted as families by the U.S. Census for the first time. Or that gay dads have turned up in all manner of commercials and top-ranked TV shows. Or how I belong to a Facebook group of over 3,000 gay fathers.*
But instead let's just celebrate what makes gay dads unique, as well as what makes them as equally awesome as all the other active, engaged and loving fathers out there.
I really could have gone on and on (and may yet). In the mean time, be sure and tell your dads -- gay or otherwise -- how AWESOME they are. Happy Fathers' Day!
