Mark Brennan Rosenberg

Just hours after Pope Benedict XVI announced his unexpected resignation, a bolt of lightning struck St. Peter's Basilica. Many say it's unequivocally a sign from God. If so, I'm hoping it's an "amen" moment signaling the end of an oppressive era of LGBTQ bashing.

For many gay people, spending the holidays with their families is an uncomfortable, nerve-wracking experience that means repressing their true selves to avoid conflict, taking a step backward on the path to self-acceptance they fought so hard to forge.

What will it take for us, as families, to be honest this holiday season? To talk, openly and lovingly, about the issues that scare us? How can we create families where everyone is free to participate fully, to share their loves and losses, and really know each other?

In some ways he holds to the stereotype of the young gay boy that many of us were: doe-eyed and sensitive, artistic, soft, a lover of life, insightful and wise beyond our years, not particularly athletic. And then there is the female best friend who stands by him and roots him on.

I am sitting here at 9:06 p.m. on a Thursday night listening to "The Power of Love," sober, alone, and quite content. Many (but not all) gay men share common traits with housewives in their mid 40s or 50s.
