Ask The Lesbian

Rainbow Days at Six Flags leads to a question -- Inclusion or exclusion?

Good day, everyone ...

How many times have you been to Six Flags over Georgia and you have seen more than 1 or 2 gay couples or families? For me everytime I have gone with my family to an amusement park or water park I seem to stick out like a sore thumb.

My partner & I have 2 kids. One is 7 the other is 2 and we are a close family. When we go to these places sometimes I get a little insecure and if you know who I am, insecure is not usually one of my traits. I feel sometimes I had to hide who I am so my kids can be and do all they want.

Truly being a lesbian has never stopped me or my family from going anywhere but I know we wouldn't typically hold hands in Whitewater or Six Flags. So I am so excited that on August 25 we have Rainbow Days at Six Flags over Georgia. Finally I can go with my family to an amusement park and my kids can see more than just one or 2 families that have 2 mommies or 2 daddies. So really the topic is inclusion or exclusion. I prefer inclusion.

What do y'all think?

I haven't been to Six Flags in a long time. If I got on some of those rides at my age, I'm afraid that the only rainbow would be the one issuing from my mouth.

Jim I'm sure you would have a blast and oh boy think of the fun you could have pretending you're a teenager again...

I think a rainbow day is awesome, where same gender parents/couples can share a hug, or a little affection without any staring or drama. As far as being insecure for the sake of your children, I know 2 wonderful and bright girls raised by 2 moms, and they're some of the most well-adjusted people I know. If you are secure in who and what you are, they will be too.
