When I was a kid and into my teens I was very much against the idea of a person being homosexual. I didn't go out of my way to put anybody down or anything but I had always seen it as "gross" and "wrong" and didn't feel it was right for anyone to be that way. Well, fast forward about 10+ years, going to college in a town like San Francisco and many gay friends and coworkers later, I have become very accepting and supportive of the lifestyle.
It's amazing what happens when you really get to know people who are gay. Those preconceptions, and assumptions, just go right out the window, and you realize how human they are. I would love it if everyone would have that experience, and come away from it with the knowledge that being gay isn't a disease, or a disorder, but the very same need for love and intimacy that everyone else has.
