You Wanna Hear Something Beautiful? (Warning: It's so full of love it might make you cry, too.)

A lesbian grandmother, M.J. Seide, and her 12 year old granddaughter Genna talk, for the first time, about the grandmother being gay.

It was a Valentine's week story on NPR. Click here, and listen!
(It's just under 3 minutes long.)

Wow. It got me all teary-eyed. And happy. And sappy.

Because that old myth about how if you're Queer you can never find love or have a family is so busted open for the lie it is. And that myth is destroyed by the power of love. Every day, by so many of us. Living our lives. And loving.


You can hear it in their voices.

And I wanted to share.



p.s. Thanks to Astrostraddle for the link!

This is wonderful. As a teen with a gay grandpa, I think that this is incredibly touching, and I'm very happy that it was broadcast on NPR.
