When I was in high school, my mom had a new ceiling fan installed in my bedroom. It looked exactly like this:
Several years later, I came out as gay. Coincidence? I’ll let you be the judge.
Anyway, I just wanted to give a Mother’s Day shout-out to my mom, who is in every way fabulous. Sure, she is known for her impeccable taste and interior-decorating prowess, her eye for style and ever-fashionable appearance, and her love of opera, Broadway musicals, and Barbra Streisand. But lest you suspect otherwise, none of my mom’s hey-girl fabulousness actually made me gay. No more than that gay pride-y ceiling fan did. All it did, really, was make me fabulous, too.
So thanks for everything you’ve given me, Mom. You’re the the best a guy like me could’ve asked for!
Happy Mother’s Day!
