FEATURE: "I Lived It: From Homophobe to Father of a Gay Son" via ozy

Bay Area-based father Anthony Hamilton shared the story of how he came to accept his gay son on ozy.com. This is a very powerful testimony.

As soon as he appeared, I could see: His walk was different, so too his…See More

Posted on September 12, 2014 at 10:30am 1 Comment
