Although Agoura is not West Hollywood, nor is it Pocatello Idaho! I know of at least one openly lesbian couple, one of whom was involved in city government and was an active player in the community. They were well liked by all of their neighbors including me until they moved out of state.
Maybe I'm just getting old but I never heard of anyone having two Moms or two Dads. This is the lingo of choice for those who write text books, but I'll bet that jargon is embarrassing to the kids of those families who know darn well there is no such thing as two Mommies or Daddies and that people are just saying that because they are embarrassed to say "my Mom or Dad is gay".
No gay man or woman should ever have to be embarrassed about it and being gay is nothing to be embarrassed about ..... only an idiot would make an issue of it and fortunately we don't have many of those.
I think if folks cut away the fat and quit dancing around the issues with euphemisms we might get past our Neanderthal traditions faster. Or maybe not!
I am certain though that Agoura is a safe and lovely place to live, whether you are straight or gay and that a gay couple or a family with gay members is as welcome here as anyone else.
A few years later, in high school, my older daughter had a male classmate with 2 moms. Though I'm sure there must have been some difficulties - I never heard of problems for them.
Agoura HIlls isn't considered a diverse community but I certainly hope we're intelligent and thoughtful enough to welcome all families.
I know a 29 year old who is one of the most wonderful, loving, responsible & secure young adults.
It is a pleasure to be friends with his mom & dad. Dad became opening gay when their son was
6 months old .
I don't know what it was like for them to raise their son.
As nice as it might have been to have neighbors who were welcoming it had to have been the parents who did something right to raise such a happy and secure son. (Probably nothing you don't already know).
I admire you for being honest and true to yourself. And, if you're moving to Agoura Hills - WELCOME.
