She also announced she will again be a part of the upcoming Pride March on June 29 ”as a mom [and] ally” through a Facebook post. “Will be bringing my mom-friends too!” she wrote. Adding, “For those who would want some mom-hugs, please do not hesitate to approach us. You all deserve to feel loved, supported & accepted.”
A lot of LGBTQ+ people, especially those who come from a conservative background, are often rejected by their parents, so this one is a touching initiative by the senator. “Free dad hugs” and “free mom hugs” at Pride Marches in other countries have actually become a thing. Goes to show just how much we still need to do for the LGBTQ+ community. Of course, there’s always plenty of love at the Pride March—which is why we can’t wait. See you there!
