  •  I do recall a straight couple (1+ / 0-)

    attending many of the sessions that I also attended.  I suspect that you and your husband were that couple.  (I will not ask you to describe yourself.)

    I'm happy that you're inspired to write a diary.  Borrow whatever you may want to borrow.

      that was probably us. To give a brief description: we are a stunning couple.   hah-hah.  middle-aged, white couple, I have short dark hair and my husband is tall and thin.

      Anyway, we may be straight, but we TOTALLY support gay rights and equal marriage rights for all.

      We have both felt this way for years. However, in the last couple years, my niece came out, and now I feel even more strongly. When an issue directly affects someone who is close to you, it just becomes that much more personal.
