It’s 2019 and a lot of people like to say that the LGBT community has all the freedoms and they have nothing to protest about. Well, the reality is a bit different than that. The wedding day is an important moment in any person’s life and you want to share special the moments and your happiness with your closest family and friends. However, a lot of gay or lesbian couples around the world are not even able to get married, but the ones that can are discriminated by their friends and family who don’t attend their weddings.
Fortunately, there are still good people out there, and Sara Cunningham is one of them. The mother of two from Oklahoma works at an architecture firm and is also an ordained minister and LGBT advocate whose gay son got her into activism.
She explains: “I thought, ‘If my son is going to hell for being gay I’m gonna fight for him like my hair is on fire.” “Since then I’ve gotten educated and no longer believe that — so now I’ve been fighting for him and the LGBTQ community like my hair is on fire because I’ve seen the power of what fear and ignorance can do.”
How amazing is that? And like that wasn’t enough, Sarah shared some other news in her latest Facebook post too, reading:
She proceeds to explain that she simply wanted to find a way to help the LGBT couples who were rejected and dismissed by their biological families. Of course, this hit close to home for a lot of people as they shared their emotions in the comment section. Yes, Sarah!
