In an alternate, parallel universe, E (the tall one) is a famous Broadway dancer. Actually, we both love to dance. E usually leads and I follow. We keep saying that someday we will take lessons. Maybe we will. I would love for us to take some ballroom dance classes and tap dance lessons.
If we are invited to an event that has dancing, we will take to the dance floor. Sometimes we get a lot of stares and gawking. People just need to get use to seeing same sex couples dancing together.
This event is the Jewish Family Children Services’ Spring Gala. This social service agency has a large outreach into the LGBT community. Their adoption program, Adoption Connection, welcomes couples and individuals of all ages, religions, ethnic backgrounds and sexual orientations. They are the largest agency in the West to support gay and lesbian adoptions. Unfortunately, Catholic Charities and the Archdiocese of San Francisco believe in discrimination and exclusion based on “beliefs and teachings”.
