When my daughter asked why our friends are gay, it reminded me how far we've come.
My wife and I count two different gay couples — one female, one male — among our closest friends.
We see these friends often, and they are important people to our two young daughters.
A few weeks ago, we saw both couples in one day. In the morning, one couple came over to celebrate our daughter’s second birthday. We ate cake and drank coffee on the roof deck while the children played. Later that day, we went to the other couple’s house for dinner. There we ate more cake and drank beer while the children ran around the backyard with the two dogs.
