GLAAD Launches Campaign to Make Your Relatives Uncomfortable This Thanksgiving


Let Aunt Betty chew on something besides her turkey leg, suggests GLAAD:

We've all had those Thanksgiving dinners where Aunt Betty decides this is the perfect time to discuss a year's worth of ailments and medical treatments. Well, you know what?  If she can talk about her podiatrist, you can talk about your partner. 

The fact is, while you're scarfing down mashed potatoes and staying silent while everyone else at the table is freely speaking their minds, you're missing a golden opportunity to make real, honest progress by talking about your life, and the things you care about.  It's okay if Aunt Betty feels a little awkward at first, it's important for her to know that someone she loves cares deeply about LGBT equality.
