I'm not the first or only guy to be a dad. Or a single dad. Or even a single gay dad. I don't think there's that many of us, but I'm not one of a kind. Nevertheless, I am different from almost everyone I'm close with, including the gay couples I know with children.
There's something about Pride that never fully resonated with me, but now that I'm in a certain place in my life and a father, my pride is much subtler, but much more powerful than I ever could have expected.
