    back in the 1980s in my first full-time job after I left college. (The CEO of our company was a Republican, but didn't care who people slept with as long as it didn't impact profits.) Working alongside them and realizing they had the same issues I did with relationships and paying bills and all the other stuff folks in their 20s and 30s deal with helped me put aside a lot of my mom's teaching that gays are "icky" and accept them as just like me.
