I kid you not, my dad almost didn’t let me go to Pride last year because of this. I told him I wanted to go "as an ally." I knew that he was okay with gay people, but I didn’t know how he would feel about me BEING gay. Either way, the first thing he said wasn’t ‘are you gay’ or ‘that’s a sin.’ He told me that there might be protesters, which is understandable. He then asked if it was “that LG-whatever group.” (He didn’t say it in a bad way. He just didn’t know.) When I told him it was, he said “you know p*dophiles are trying to get into that community?”
It was weird. I didn’t think that anyone who wasn’t ‘keeping up’ with the community would know. He doesn’t have Instagram or anything, and I haven’t seen anything about it on the news. It was weird to think that he knew that.
It only proved how much of an impact that some groups do have on the LGBT community. It shows just how big of an impact it is. .
