On a personal note, let me tell you about my mum.
When she was younger, for many years, my mum volunteered in the pallative care in Royal Victoria Hospital in Montreal. This was in the 70s and 80s when AIDS was rampant, there were no treatements and it was an automatic - and relatively fast - death sentence.
Brought up in Ireland by nuns, innundiated with Catholicism and both secular and religious strictures, in many ways she rose above her upbringing and was an openminded accepting woman - kind beyond mention - but she did NOT get or accept in any way, homosexuality. She just could not get her head around it - saw it as "unnatural", "twisted", even evil....
until, week after week, month after month she watched as AIDS-wracked individuals were admitted to the unit where she volunteered, to die, emaciated, wracked with pain, in grief. And watched, night after night, as that their same sex partners came religiously, with love, with grief, with a deep abiding caring that she could neither deny nor reduce to simplistic terms. She watched as these partners washed with loving hands their lover, as they wiped faces, and cleaned vomit, and sat, night after night after night and saw them out of this life... and mourned with them as the patient died and saw and understood the deep, real, TRUE and abiding grief of the one left behind.
And realized, reluctantly, still not entirely comprehending, but understanding - and telling me, love is love, whatever its guise.
The world is a harsh place; each of wrestles with despair, with economic hardship, we watch wars and human cruelty play out in our cities, our nations, our homes.... I, for one, will NEVER reputidate, deny nor do anything but celebrate love ...whatever its guise.
