“I do think LGBT youth would be better off with LGBT parents because they’d have a better understanding. The children would have parents who know where they’re coming from and it’s not a constant fighting ground between the youth and parental figures.”

“I think if an LGBT child has straight parents and those parents love that child, he or she should stay there. If a child is rejected by his or her parents, then the child has to be somewhere where they are safe and loved.”

“I think the most important thing is their parents are good people but after that, yes, of course I think they would be better off with LGBT parents, because I think they know more about what the youth are going through.”
