Lesbian Moms Address Homophobe Troy Mayor

Written by

Amy and Tina Weber came in front of their mayor during a city council to tell her that they are a gay family.

Janice L. Daniels, mayor of Troy in Michigan, had said homophobe remarks last June following the gay marriage law in New York.

She said: "I think I am going to throw away my I love New York carrying bag now that queers can get married there."

So a few days ago, Amy and Tina, a lesbian couple living in Troy, made a point of presenting their family to their mayor:

"We came here tonight because we wanted Mayor Daniels to have a really good look at – and to meet for maybe the first time in her entire life – a gay family," said Amy.

Even if Daniels was "very, very moved by the whole experience", she however added at the end of the council: "I wish I could think of something really nice to say, but I can't think of something that would be absolutely appropriate."

I think the best you can do is to say nothing at al and I stay polite.
