Sally Field speaks up for Gay son
 
I love this clip of Sally Field receiving an award at the HRC and she talks so lovingly about her son who is gay. It's so touching to listen to her have so much love and admiration for her son.

Have a look at the video.

I know it's long but it's touching and the last 2 minutes are very good :)

Foe Paula
 
Thank you for sharing this wonderful speech with us Paula.

Both Sally and her son are very brave.


Love,
Wolfdog

Wow . . . I was scrolling around on some older posts on the Media thread and about to start a new thread about movies (which I will do in a few), but ran across this one . . .

As a lesbian who has struggled with parental acceptance (and pretty much have just come to terms with it being what it is), it is so moving to see a mother get up in front of a crowd and exclaim her love for her gay child. Would love for my own momma to "accidentally" stumble across this video...

I'm also a big fan of Sally Field in general--see my pseudonym "Norma Rae"--so this video was a double treat for me.

It's a good watch for everyone, tho, especially the last 45 seconds or so!

Namaste from the Midwest,
steph
