Hello and welcome to this StoryCorp podcast. In this episode, we will hear from Robert. He grew up in Mississipi during the 1960s and he was close to both his parents. He tells us he could talk to them about anything. But here he tells with his friend about one topic that kept them talking for years.

When I was ten, I told my parents I was going to marry a man when I grew up. And mother, you know, growing up in a farming community, she was like ask pretty time I known. And when i  dicided to start living openly, I came out to them again. Because my mother always told me, “we can handle anything as a family as long as you tell us first. I don’t want to hear about it from friends or strangers”. So, I told them. And my father was very cool with that right away. He said, “it doesn’t matter to me you spend your life with a man or a woman as long as you make it something you can hold your head up about.” My mother took sometime, because she thought it was a fault and she felt guilty about it. My grandma said, “You are missing out on a beautiful relationship because you can’t accept this about him. He is still the same person you raised that we all grew up with.”

And I went home to vist my mom. And this particular night, she asked me if I would stay up over there of an idea. And she just started asking me about all these questions: like between two man? And what could we possibly do? And all that kind of stuff. She said if you are got embarrass, you don’t need to answer. I said, “I won’t embarrass, I’m just shork you ask me.” And she said, “I want to know” so I explain to her. And she sat there with straight face and of cause she just”eh”, “just curious”

In October of 2006 when my mother was passing, she put a hand on my face. And she said, “you are so precious!” she said, “I love you”. I said, “I love you too, mom”. She said, “No, I means unconditionally.” Ah! I was just astounding. She just said open, beautiful acceptance. It was just the greatest gift she could have given me.
