    My story is my own. I am a child of 2 mommies and I hope to start a family myself with 2 mommies. I was raised very traditionally by very latin parents . Church and sunday shcool were regular to me as a child. I found it to be very hard as a child because I grew up in the south where being latin was weird and being gay was totally out of the question. I had many friends who were not allowed to spend the night at my house and I was often not invited to birthday parties because of my “alternative” life. it didnt matter that I was a cheerleader and honor roll student. Through this I found true love and friendship from very few people, I had so many judgements against me that I made it my life goal to NEVER judge anyone and keep love in my heart for human kind because when it comes down to it… We are all the same… Humans.
